I was on duty that evening and had a few very hectic hours, sending several news flashes as the scope of the attack gradually became clearer. It was a great advantage to know the city reasonably...

No no no. Christ was blond and tall, but he was definitely Scandinavian. That has been defined by our artists for hundreds of years.

To jmdias: too many tourists

Thank you Jorge,
I think you are right. I recently read about growing resentment against foreign tourists in Lisbon. This time I estimated that there were at least 100 times more tourists in Porto...

To alvaraalto: "perfect"

Thank you Rob for your kind words.
When I don't get exactly the photo I wanted, I look at what I got and make the best of what coincidence brought me. ;)
Best wishes,

To saxo042: Tack Gunnar

Hej och tack,
Det var både vackrare väder och varmare den dagen för precis en månad sen än idag. Hur det är med blommorna nu vet jag inte.
Jag antar att ni har stort firande på nära håll idag....

Thank you Paul,
Yes, I have noticed that parts of this photo look strange. Unfortunately I didn't see it until after I had uploaded it. Then John and Murat pointed it out. I really don't know the...

Thank you Malgo,

Thank you Murat,
I have no idea about the artifacts and didn't even notice them until after I had posted the photo. I didn't do anything in particular during processing, in fact very little at all....

To Royaldevon: the bridge

Thank you Bev,
While moving at a certain speed I had a limited choice of shooting angles that suited the light. But I will no doubt show better photos of that bridge later on. It is hard to avoid it...

Hello Luciano,
Thanks for the link. I will take a closer look at the details. It sounds like my tour of Bhutan. Very comfortable and efficient. But in Bhutan arranged tours are the only option. You...
