    Hello Costantino,
    Wow ! This is what I called Christmas Fun :-)
    The joy and happiness ... even the Santa is singing in the cabin , keeping warm and shouting Ho!Ho!Ho! to the snowmen on the cho cho train ...
    Such a perfect Christmas 'photo-card' to dedicate to all of us. Likewise , my dear friend.
    I can't wait to kiss Under the Mistletoe again :-)
    Thanks for sharing the Christmas wish.

    Hello Jean,
    To me ... the whole picture is like a 'graffiti' painting.
    Just looking at the piercing blue 'eye' of the snake ... I'm totally hypnotized and hoping that I'll not be 'Tongue' by it.
    You know what, I don't know ... will it be nice to see someone running terrifying out from the house too or terrifying two-head snakes :-)
    This is a very well seen street art work by Scaf.

    Hello Ian,
    I see that the rain and floods ... indeed very wet but it makes the pictures very interesting and beautiful. All the water reflections.
    Yeah, I know what you meant about 'wading through water' ... very nuisance :-)
    When I was there the weather was perfect. It was very very busy. I can definitely be related to the picture in the WS. The tour groups could be from Holland :-)
    Seeing this place or Vietnam ... brought back good memories.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    I've seen some of your new inspirations ... very cleverly created a 'mirror-scene' to the surroundings.
    Too bad my bike doesn't have a mirror. Maybe I should put one :-)
    Amazing!!! How can a tower and chapel can be easily 'fitted' in a small round mirror. You definitely have skill, in measuring the distances at which spots , just like this one. A Spot-On mirror reflection.
    Thanks for the inspiration shot. I learned something new.

    Hello Luciano,
    At a glance and the title... I thought it was you :-)
    Well, I do like the look of him though ... he seemed to be having fun 'modeling' for you , this is what I called 'catwalk-on-bike' on the cobblestones alley.
    Even the bicycle is a bit too small for him but he can definitely handled it with 'grace' :-)
    I don't know ... with all the work in progress, I find it very interesting alley. Esp the smooth-surfaced cobblestones and the 'opening' archways.
    You know what, I never had people apologized to me ... maybe the 'dirty look' or mostly the 'money look' :-)
    Well, thanks for sharing this pretty 'ruined' photo.

    P/S: Thank you for your kind words , my latest photo.
    You see ... you're a real gentleman too.
    It's YOU make this site amusing. Not me :-)

    It's such a beautiful photo of the virgin.
    The face is so pure and holy , blessed with kindness and compassion.

    Hello Lars,
    Yes, it's such a lovely 'pinky' building with the full sunlight and clear blue sky ( again and again I see wonderful weather you've ).
    The most dominant in this picture ... has to be the two 'Yacht Masts' competing with each other ... who is taller and can sails faster :-) It seems like the white yacht is more 'sleek & new'.
    The flowers f/g add some 'sweetness' in the photo.

    Hello Bev,
    It's incredible how the old chimney is still standing even though there are some cracks , looking extremely fragile ... one tiny tremor will bring the whole chimney tumbling down. I would reckon.
    But the chimney has found 'help' , seemingly ... the tree's shadow is supporting and gripping it tightly like the Force of Nature , again seen in the WS.
    This is really good picture ... a sense of 'towering' with each other , the tress and chimney.
    Thanks for sharing this lost old mill.

    Hello Paul,
    This is a very good 'exemplar' of Autumnal colours.
    All that gold 'razzle-dazzle' in all sights ... and the scent of freshness 'woody-musk' lingering in the park.
    I also like the pictures in the WS. All the leaves shimmering in light yellow-gold under the soft sunlight.

    Yeah, it was beautiful day here too - a crisp autumn day.
    I notice that this park seems to be on the slope ... small gentle slope shall I say. Wonderful park to go for a walk regardless what seasons.

    Thanks for sharing this 'speedy' upload photo.

    Hello Gert,
    This late afternoon sunlight gives a warm 'glow' scene on a cold windy day. Lovely tree-shadows painted on the walls at Nytorget , the very same walls where people were sitting to the warmth of the sun.
    Such a joy picture showing the soft side of fatherhood , having a great time together with the children. I don't know who are having the fun most ... Kids? I think Dads! :-)
    When I'm taking picture of children playing , I tend not to point the camera directly at them ( individually ) ... just the whole scene. Or I stand a bit further , using the camera zoom.
    I like the name of the statue. Let the 'lek' begin ! Dads and kids ...
    I do believe that there are more hidden 'Mummies' in the WS :-)

    Hello Pavle,
    This river Velika Morava ... the water is so calm and beautiful with the reflections of the naked tress along the riverbank.
    A wonderful scenery like this ... 'fish or no fish' at least you have good company to share all the 'delicious' foods and washed it down with good wines ... this is what I called pure 'enjoyment'.
    I just love the simple daily life. I wish I can do that here :-)
    Soon ... very soon, this river will be 'frozen' in the winter. I like to see that too.
    Thanks for sharing this lovely day on the Morava.

    Hello John,
    This is what I would say , 'Walking in nature' into a quiet world away from the busyness of life and all the violent protesting recently.
    Looking at this picture alone, makes the mind a lot calmer and happier. The soothing autumnal colours and the natural surroundings with the geese ... it's so beautiful.
    I do believe that they are 'Geese' ... It doesn't matter I can pretend they are 'Swans' :-)

    groetjes, Loong
    Nog een fijne dag verder.

    Hello dear Costantino,
    I love 'Christmas Decorations' on street ... seeing this picture , I'm feeling very 'Christmassy' already.
    The picture could be better if ... but , hey ! I still can see all the 'glitz & dazzle' glistening in the blurry vision :-)
    The lights f/g , are like 'Fireflies' glowing on the trees , in the city and a bench to sit enjoying the festive mood.
    I see that there is a good 'intention' in this picture , I would rather focus on :-)

    Hello MALgo,
    Ha!ha!ha! we both had a little break on TE. Sometimes it's good to break the 'Addiction' the TE has.
    I love to go to India one day but I'm afraid the culture shock in term of hygienic conditions.
    Anyway, this is a very interesting temple. I do find Indian's Temple is very fascinating.
    This big rock above is like a small elephant with big ears. Elephant is also consider sacred animal like the Lord Ganesh. So many 'mind blowing' God or Goddess paintings to devote to.
    I love the goddess Durga in WS1. Goddess with eight hands and the weapons for different purposes I guess.
    I think it was worth climbing up the 300 steps even you burnt your bare-feet :-)

    I find it quite amusing ... I'm not talking about the photo , in fact the photo is superb , amazing green with a stunning touch of bright purple and fallen leaves ... the autumnal colour leaves still dangling from the branches. It's so appealing to look at.
    OK ... the amusing part is that, the seasons.

    Hello Zbigniew,
    It's a wonderful 'Portrait' the relationship between A man and his royal dog.
    Both of them ... one feeling exhausted and the other feeling dog-tired from the heat as you said.
    I think it was not a good day for day-dreaming siting on the scorching square. It's better to rest at home.

    Hello Lucas,
    I'm not a football fan but I do watch football , only European and World Cup.
    Watching football can be so 'ecstatic' and 'triumph' when the team you are supporting has won.
    I'm not going to talk about losing , it happened a lot of times. Just like the big clouds looming in with despaired :-)
    On the other hand, I do love these clouds. It's so mesmerizing. Great shot.

    Hello Paul,
    As first I thought you were inside or shall I say ... visiting a Tibet's temple.
    Now I know why its called 'Abstraction' :-)
    I love this kind sort of artwork ... it's playful and fun , once inside it becomes disorientated at the same feeling excited. Exactly what's the picture shown here.
    I do like the setup in WS1. For the WS2 , I like to see it in real esp when its moves with the wind.
    It's a very clever simple artwork and three wonderful photos taken in a different arrangement.

    You've caught a lovely romantic scene with a touch of 'days gone by'.

    This is really wonderful shot of these maple leaves.
