    Hi Chris,
    Maybe because it was away from the main city it escaped the attention of Ottomans who didn't manage to transform all Byzantine churches to mosques. Nice to see the very ancient mosaic so well preserved. You have a great collection and even in spite of all lockdowns you keep surprising us with a lot of views from all around Europe,

    Hi Luciano

    The fly adds a whimsical touch. It looks like it is spying on the amorous butterflies. Excellent sharpness and differential focus. Tfs!

    Hello Ali,

    You have probably heard of Rumi. I visited his tomb in Konya, Turkey, but no photos allowed. He was also famous for poetry. A fine monument with good sharpness and lighting Tfs!

    Hi Ike,
    From a plane to the boat. I thought from the title that it is an invitation to your reportage maybe that you went on that boat for a trip, but I can see now that it is an actual name of the boat. Very well spotted. The main version has a nice secretive framing with the vegetation around,
    Very well done,

    Hi Chris,
    It is amazing to realize how old this neclace is. GReat capture. These expositions have such an uncertain fate so it was definitely worth to record it.
    I have to take more photos in museums!

    Hej Gert

    Already Russia has tried to blackmail Poland, Bulgaria and now Finland into paying for gas in rubles. All of them have refused. Finland is now getting its gas from the Estonia pipeline. A striking contrast of the soldiers at left and the relaxing woman at right. Tfs!

    Hello Ian

    It's a pity to just let the building fall apart. Maybe relocate it to an outdoor museum and restore it? They had an old school within the grounds of the Jondaryan Woolshed on the Darling Downs. Interested me to see the old slates the kids used to write on, as well as old school photos. Tfs!

    Bonjour Jean,
    Fantastic picture. It well gives away the reason why this area is so loved by photographers. The colors are stunning. Blue and yellow could be used as a support for Ukraine I suppose.
    Very well selected fragment with fabulous colors.

    Hi Ian,
    I thought in English "willy" refers to a male body part? Maybe that is why for the purpose of the wind it is used twice?
    Beautiful series of photos. I like the color theme, which makes it feel like an old photograph.
    Very well done,

    Fantastic composition with the shop window, There are plenty of bright colors and the always interesting reflections. The colors seem to be chosen as a tribute to Ukraine :)

    Hi Murat,
    In fact I have uesd a falcon's help yesterday in my garden. There are some house martins which come regularly to build a nest above the entrance to my house. It becomes extremely messy twice a year. Their droppings "decorate" my house entrace and they are also food for more insects etc.
    Yesterday I found in internet a recording of a falcon voice and I kept playing it when I noticed they came to build the nest. They got scared away, I hope this will discourage them this year but I am worried they will be back next day to continue.
    Great reportage,
    Very good idea to show such gifts in a form of museum. I think Vatican Museums work in a similar way...

    Ciao Luciano,
    It is interesting that there are some places you never hear about but when you prepare for a trip you read about interesting destinations and then of course you say thay this is famous or popular. I suppose it is tru, some places atre popular among tourist visitors more than other.
    Very creative composition here with optimal use of the reflection. Even the rainy weather may be beneficial to a good photographer,

    Hi Jorge,
    I would not be able to spot them in the previous wide photo.
    Quite an original artwork. I like also the blue hour version in your link. Yes you would need to be able to get much closer to include the pond. Very well seen and captured,
