    Hi Chris
    this is like one of those Peek-a-boo type of shots.
    like opening up a gift with a present inside.
    love the darkened underside of the arch as everything else is bright and light. you could tilt correct the horizon line, but then you'd lose the arch circle up top...hard choice to make.
    fun shot, it came out well.
    cheers

    Hi Paul
    great to have you back on TE.
    I just read your note, its very inspiring...now I REALLY want to travel to Laos. I would imagine Laos being total OPPOSITE to Thailand and Vietnam (i was in thailand for a month, but it was 15+ years ago). classic kind of shot here with the hills and plantations, I like it a lot. I can't wait to see all your other shots. So many countries you visited...how do you pick which shots to show first????
    cheers

    Hi Paul
    I didn't know you were in Laos, I hope you got back in time before Covid 19 struck. Are you self isolating? I didn't know you have been posting again on TE, welcome back :)
    another great shot, and you're so right about how its difficult for men to take photos of children, yet woman seem to have much more freedom to do so - i get it. wonderful shot my friend, having fun with a bag! poorer children have it better in SOME ways. Looking forward to seeing more
    cheers

    Hello Ryszard,
    It's an original wall painting, whatever it is supposed to mean. It is made with some artistic talent and the photo captured its colours well.

    Hello Michael,
    The present crisis is hard to understand for small children. She doesn't look happy at all, but we don't really know the reason. Maybe she was just told that she couldn't have another chocolate bar. Or she is just as bored as most of us who can't live the way we want. Nicely snapped in any case.

    Hello Luis,
    It's a fine fašade of a shop that looks like it was here forever. It has a lot of character. In spite of some reflections in the window it's a well taken photo with pleasant colour. Above all it's a very neatly cropped photo with perfect symmetry.
    Best regards,

    Hello John, I was twice in york and I like it very very much. I went around along the old walls, went to a few museums (I had such a card for it). Of course, the Cathedral is fantastic. I do not remember this particular street, it looks very nice, with the elegant shops.
    Strange that you didn't notice this man sitting in the doorway with the sleeping bag. It is the strongest element here, together with the title, especially now. It seems, that even then people were trying to be as far as possible. Sad picture, what happened to this man now, with all these restrictions? What about washing hands? safe food and sleeping?
    Anyway, for us on TE the restrictions are mainly a nuisance. Nothing especially serious. It is not so for Luciano, who has to have his bar closed. For many people, it would be a real tragedy, when they lose their jobs or in the case of violence at homes.

    Stay safe, at least you know very well how to wash hands :0

    Hello lars, Fantastic view of these colourful boats and people in their also colourful life jackets. From this picture, we can't say if the current was strong or not. In Bali, I went for rafting in such a boat. It was fun. we were quite wet after the rapids.
    Stay safe.

    Hello Costantino, How you stay at home when you go to the sea? We have not such an opportunity, I haven't been away from home more than 300 m for a month already. Nice view of the lone boat.

    Hello Wii, Strange the name of the location. I wonder if there are Second and Third. Fantastic view of the valley but as Gert pointed out, the girl in red makes it even nicer. I see the lovely path on the right side. Why couldn't you make the whole 101 km? Not in one day, of course, but it5 must be spectacular hiking. Strange to see the photo not of the sea.
    Stay safe

    Hello John,
    These trees have strange shapes but they create fascinating reflections. The lake was the most perfect mirror you could find, and no artist could have created finer shapes than what nature did with these trees and their reflections. The light was very beneficial too, and you managed the usual sharpness.

    Hello Costantino,
    This is a beautifully bright photo. The red against the green, and some yellow dots, makes this possibly the most colourful and eye-catching photo of the day. I like that you cropped it so tightly to focus entirely on the flowers and the trees. It was a good decision to disregard the hills in the background and the sky.
    Best regards,

    Brilliant huge number of migrating birds in flight and fabulous landscape at golden hour. It's a sight to see and enjoy the moment for sure. as they are preparing for the journey to warmer climates. A lovely nature beauty of the gathering in the early hours of the day. Congrats

    The exposure without flash has come out really well that you have achieved visibility of detail all round with nice shades and lovely looking natural colour. An illustration of fine religious sculptures supported by good description. Excellent capture

    Time to remain indoor as the whole town is under lock when the virus wreaks havoc around the world. Another good view from your window with that excellent looking rusty roof and the view beyond. A very moody shot of everyday life, Well done

    Hello Jean,
    Seeing the thumbnail I thought this must be Ludlow or Shrewsbury. I have fond memories from here, and they became so much clearer when I scanned and posted a few old photos quite recently. Ludlow still seems to be a very pretty town, just as it was in 1966. I think I actually remember this street corner. And I definitely remember the view from the WS, taken just a few meters from where I took another WS photo.
    Best wishes,
    Gert
