    Hello Sven, It looks the worst. What to do with all this debris? I can't imagine the scale of this flood disaster. thanks for the reportage. I live very near the Vistula river. some years ago the situation was threatening, but ended well. But seeing the floods, I am scared that it could happen also in Warsaw.

    Hello Sven,
    I hope that your house was not so severely stricken with the flood. I saw some reports on TV and it looks horrible. Here it is Ahr river. What about the Rhine?
    The damage is big and to remove the consequences need a lot of money and work, but the most tragic is the loss of people.
    All the best in this difficult time MAlgo

    Hello Pavle, Interesting to see what book you have. All are in order, all in the Serbian language, I think. My books are rather chaotic, in many different places. Nice to see this old telephone. strange view when almost all people have electronic ones or mobiles.

    Hello Lars,
    Excellent presentation of this beautiful white windmill. It is quite big. It is in a good state, is it still used? In Poland, the windmills are usually wooden. Fantastic view against the blue sky. Is it possible to go to this balcony?

    Hello Paul An original architecture of this mosque. Here again, we see the tower (minarets) of the same design but different sizes. I like the mangroves. The name is really long and I couldn't find what it means.

    Hello, Paul, I think it is not only the postman nightmare. what about the kids going to school and the parents waiting for them? It looks photogenic but I wouldn't dare to use it.
    An interesting note about Brunei. I don't know anything about this tiny country. Maybe I only saw the splendour of Sultan's residence.
    It is horrible in what direction goes life in some countries with religious fanatics gaining more power. I have seen the movie about Malaysia. There the restrictions go from the northern parts and maybe soon the smiling Islamic country would be gone.
    But the same we observe in Poland too. Our ruling party is strongly catholic. We have very restricted abortion law, they postulate totally forbid it, the ruling party and the government are homophobic and misogynic. I am really scared.

    hello Elaine,
    I have read and saw on TV about the tragic floods in Belgium, Netherlands and Germany. The climate changes are dramatic - we experience extreme situations - droughts, strong winds, floods. People lose life or everything they have. It is tragic and sad. I wonder what is the situation in Liege and Maastricht.
    Here the clouds are a bit threatening but the river looks idyllic.

    Olá Jorge, Cena agradável na rua.
    As cores são atraentes. Uma observação interessante sobre o correio.
    Na Polônia, o carteiro traz principalmente as cartas oficiais. Caso contrário, a maioria das pessoas usa e-mails. De qualquer forma, quase não uso mais correio normal. Os pacotes são trazidos por mensageiros ou deixados em gaiolas especiais. Os carteiros mudam com bastante frequência, por isso não me conhecem, tal cena seria impossível.
    Atenciosamente

    Witaj Kasiu, Ja nie muszę zgadywać, bo już przeczytałam w jakiejś krytyce:). A i bez tego pewnie nie trudno byłoby się domyślić, bo chodzi o żeglarza. Z pewnością będzie to wspaniała przygoda. Ale żaglówka to nie moja broszka. Kiedyś popłynęłam z przyjaciółmi dość wypasionym jachtem ze Świnoujścia do Szwecji, i kiedy nie widziałam brzegu, to leżałam na ławce jak nieżywa. Ale zachód wspaniały i świetna kompozycja z tym napisem.
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie

    Hello Craig, What I can say. I feel devastated by this tragic news. What a time we had together! I remember our first meeting in Castle Square as if it was yesterday. At least we have memories - in our hearts and also on memory cards.

    Ciao Luciano, I have read on FB that he has been in intensive care for almost a month but I hoped that he would recover. I am very sad. I met Serghei twice - at his place in Krasnokamsk and in Warsaw. we had such a great time together. What a tragedy for the family. RIP.
    Nice view of the rolling hills of Tuscany and probably olive orchards.

    Hello Murat, The sister site TN and TL are not working anymore, sometimes there are only enough new photos for just one page, many bugs are never fixed, but the busy beaver is working hard, I imagine your mood. And the feral cats of Istanbul are the essence of the city. A few days ago I watched the movie "Kedi" about the Istanbul cats (haha, Bulent and Deniz among them) and how people love them. I am sure you and your kids saw it. And mod probably did not:(. Good view of Hagia Sophia, from the less shown point of view. I do not like distortions, so I appreciate your effort. Good colours and sharpness. Where you inside? Are there still scaffoldings?

    Hi Bev,

    Magic garden. The main picture and Workshops are similar. Nice to see the proud grandma with a girl, in matching shirt or not. I find strange the watering can - is the water going out of it?
    It is a pity that we see only photos in a small format. I prefer when I can also see the bigger picture, with more details. Here I can't recognize the flowers. Of course, there is digitalis purpurea, maybe yellow ranunculus, but what else? Maybe blue aconitum? And what are these white "eggs"?
    We had a rather wet spring, also now there is a lot of rain, so everything is growing like crazy. I can't control it.
    Best regards MAlgo

    Hi Paul, Interesting to compare your impressions with the Gert's from more than forty years ago. This story about looking for the elevator reminds me of how I wanted to climb the minaret in Bukhara. I saw some photos from the top on Internet but I couldn't find the entrance.
    I see that the "candles" here are similar to the minarets outside. But after the gorgeous exterior, this view of the interior is disappointing. The mosques in Abu Dhabi, Oman or Astana were much more beautiful and grandiose.
    Interesting presentation.
    Have a nice weekend

    Hello Brenda. I have seen some Pinsa works in different parts of the world (Baku, Zaragoza, Cambridge USA), but usually the letter form the head. Here is a bit different - the same idea but balls. Very interesting! As I am crazy about languages I would spend there quite a lot of time trying to identify used alphabets. I see clearly the Chinese (Japanese kanji) signs, Arabic, Russian, Greek, Latin, Hebrew, Devanagari (script of hindi) and probably Tamil.

    Maybe you will be interested in how Piensa made it and what was his idea: https://www.rtve.es/alacarta/videos/imprescindibles/jaume-plensa-voices-imprescindibles/5774386/

    Unfortunately (not for me) it is Spanish.

    Hi Gert, Of course, Some days before Christmas it looked quite different, with lights and stands and people around. I had no idea that it could be an unpleasant place. I walked there at night and didn't feel unsafe. I have some quite nice night shots.
    I am curious about this "carpet". It looks so unsharp. Is it other material lying? Or maybe when you look at a definite angle it becomes a 3-D illusion? I saw some photos with such an illusion there years ago. When you will go to the dentist another time, maybe you check it?
    Have a nice week
