    Hello Costantino

    Yummy! Hot crayfish! I'll have some of those and will leave the escargots and frogs legs for others! EDIT: They are actually chestnuts, which I tried in Turkey & were so so. This is this the 'marron' I was thinking of: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marron

    The mini train engine makes a novel fast food stall! Tfs!

    Yet another good shot of this classic old vintage car and the angled pov gives a view of two façades. Good sharpness and lighting. Tfs!

    Hi Lars

    I did a daytrip from Munich to Innsbruck and this peak was pointed out to the passengers on the way to the border crossing into Austria, although the bus did not stop there. A fine upward pov with good sharpness and lighting. Tfs!

    Hi Luis,

    A good elevated pov above the street crowds, with soft pastel colours and diffused light. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the decorated columns and their capitals. Tfs!

    Hi Murat

    In some parts of Colorado it was snowing in late November so I guess this region was cold enough to feel like Christmas as well. Good repetition of the trees with superb lighting and sharpness. Tfs!

    Hi Ian,

    The south China ponds were used in summer for rice paddies and in winter as a pond for the ducks. And fish as well. I saw chicken and duck eggs for sale at the entrance. A nice daily life scene from further south in Vietnam, harvesting the fish. Tfs!

    Wonderful warm cold colour contrasts between the red and blue tones. Good sharpness and framing. The solitary person with a backpack in the square animates the scene. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo

    I do not think there would be a toilet inside a Turkish style steam bath. That is a basin for clean water which is scooped and ladled over a lathered body to wash away the suds. They would sit on the raised blocks of stone. Even in Sinop prison Hamam in Turkey, there was no toilet inside. Prisoners had to go to the latrine outside and were only allowed to wash inside the hamam. Good shot btw. This is the part of Skopje Gert liked. I liked all of it. Tfs!

    Hi Paul,

    An interesting historic photo of the Islamic building from Ottoman times. An observant traveller would notice that even today, there is still a strong undercurrent of mistrust and dislike of anyone, usually Albanians or from Kosovo, who is still a practicing Muslim. From a Serbian Pov, this area and adjoining Kosovo was the historic heartland of ancient Serbia before the Ottomans invaded. This animosity ignited in the 1990's disintegration FYR, which included North Macedonia. Over time I hope this mistrust and the hostilities subside. It is a sad state of affairs when Serbian Churches and Muslim Mosques have to be barricaded with razor wire to prevent arson attacks by the opposing side. Tfs!

    Hello Luis,

    The skulls add symmetry to this superb street art and regardless of whether you like such art or not, it is infinitely preferable to the mindless tagging with zero artistic ability that abounds too often everywhere. I saw some terrific street art in Sevillia. Wishing I had have stopped there for a day or 2 instead of going straight on to Cordoba and Granada. So much to see in Spain and so little time to see it all. Tfs!

    This looks similar to Tyrell or south Bavaria, or even Upper Austria near lake Wolfgang, where parts of the Sound of Music were filmed. Nice to see that westernmost Austria also has wonderful alpine scenery. Tfs!

    Hi Mariusz

    Here is some obvious geologic evidence that at one time in the past, possibly several, huge ash clouds have been ejected from the volcano. It is much hotter to walk on than white sand as it absorbs the heat rather than reflecting most of it. I recall on Santorini having to use the hessian matting to get to the waters edge or take flip flops and throw them back up the beach away from the waves once I was in the water. Good colour and sharpness. Tfs!

    Hi Ian

    Sadly this is the section of Hue I remember the most. No doubt the occasional typhoon has worsened the severe napalm fire damage over the years. The lush tropical landscape is slowly reverting to forest. Tfs!
