    Hi Steve.
    Superb photo, the child dwarfed by the very solid looking (daubed, rendered?) walls and massive rock. The very colourful scene looks very peaceful. Also interesting to me because I recently bought a kilogram of Harar coffee beans - I've had them once before - which are very hard to get in Australia and apparently increasingly difficult to grow in the Harar district. Here's some information from the coffee dealer I get them from:
    https://www.mycuppa.com.au/ethiopia-harrar-east
    They usually sell out pretty quickly as only small quantities are available. I've also had Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee, also very nice.
    Anyway, excellent photo, superbly framed.
    Regards,
    Andrew

    Hi Steve.
    Yes, marvellous chia.... that thing that Klaudio mentioned. Also, the gentle light on the fellow's right side, darkness enveloping the space behind him. The timber frame adds interest too, with it's flowing pattern of lines echoing those in his garb. I wonder what that book is...

    Hello Silvio.
    A very pleasing picture. It seems very simple, but the shapes and shadows, and the various textures, of the building and the wall, and the perfect position of the seat, really make this one a success.

    Hello Bev.
    Long time no see. Belated happy new year to you.
    You could have cropped her out and done a bit of fiddling, but I think you made the right decision; we can share her viewpoint and wonder what she's making of the tallish fellow approaching. I love the arches and the strong, straight shadow line, plus the sunny scene beyond. It's a shot with two scenes in it! I think you must have done some judicious photoshopping on this one, with its evident contrastiness, but it's worked very well.
    Regards,
    Andrew

    Very creative idea Kari, and well executed. The title made me curious, and then I had to look twice at the photo! Very well framed and captures the detail sharply. Well done.

    Hi Daniel.
    Nice interior shot, with very good colour rendition. Great idea to include the three ladies so we can share their viewpoint. They add 'life' to the scene. Nicely done.

    What about Mississippi John Hurt? First blues record I ever bought, kind of folksy, country blues. Well, you can't see all the graves in one trip, I suppose, and I wouldn't have a clue where he's buried. Interesting list you drew up from what must be a huge range of them in that part of the country. You did a good job with the photo, achieving just the right amount of blurriness in the background.

    Hi Dale.
    A beautiful shot in superb winter sunlight. No doubt it was cold, but the colour tones give it a warmth. So many shapes and textures in this one. I like the mist-shrouded trees behind, and also the nearer ones framing the view nicely.

    A very well taken photo - sharp, well lit, and superbly timed. I like the look on the girl's face, and the giraffe looks very pleased with himself too. Well done.

    Greetings Costantino
    A very well composed winter shot, which relies on the beaten path and the two walkers approaching the camera. I like the very gentle colour tones, with the brown shades adding some warmth to the scene.

    Hello Ann.
    Seeing your return from an even longer break than mine encouraged me to join in again.
    I liked the note explaining how you came across the scene depicted here. The warm but subdued tones are very appealing and the large nets and their supports make an intriguing pattern against the sky. You composed and/or cropped it very judiciously. It was well worth looking at the full size version.
    Regards,
    Andrew

    Hi Gert!
    One of the countries I'd like to visit, but it's not so easy now. But I'll try it, it's on my list. I see you've been there many years ago, it was surely very different then, like almost all the countries. Good shot!
    Have a great New Year!

    A very nice frame, with the taxis and the Christmas decorations. Even the colour of the policemen jackets match. Well seen!
