    Hi Stephen
    these are wonderful shots.
    I have to say that I'm quite jealous.
    Wish i could be here seeing these streets in person.
    Surprised to learn this is a mosque! wonderful cultural image
    cheers

    Hi John
    Well my friend, I have learned from my career as a nurse in psychiatry, that the homeless (generally speaking) do not follow guidelines, do not WANT to live in homes (that maybe hard to believe but its true) because they often mentally ill and therefore to live in a structured home they MUST follow rules. Those rules include taking medications, and stay away from street drugs, and also show up for Mental Health Appointments. So guess what...most of these people say screw it...I'd rather live on the streets or shelters, and live the life I want. Sad, but its true. Working the past 17 years in Psych has totally given me a new perspective on the homeless. It may be harsh, but I have very little sympathy, because they often CHOOSE this life. and that's another common miss-understanding, most people don't know that. We have offered homes for the homeless when they come onto our unit, and they say NO, I'd Prefer to live on the street. Again, because they do not want to follow rules set out by others. So as for your man here, he will figure it out, they're quite resourceful, more so than you and I. Sorry for the LONG rant...it just hit a chord in my I guess. its a great shot for the Social Distancing :)
    really, one of your better shots :) cheers

    Hi Brenda
    Now this one made me smile and laugh! I was thinking about the Model even before i read about it in your note hahaha.
    To this day, its still one of my all time favorite photo experiences, definately top 3. But it was at your expense :(
    Well, i hope we can all laugh at it now. Out of all the shots I've seen from here, this is so good...never seen one that focuses on the shadows. looks great! super shot at my dispense haha. cheers

    Hi Malgo
    that's a lot of steps, your legs and thighs must have been burning on the way up. I think the brown water actually worked well, at least is gave you a distinct color contrast to the greens. Well worth the effort to come down here, the photo and the experience are excellent. cheers

    Hi Janusz
    the clouds are making a strong visual impact too, they add a lot to the overall look of the shot. Cool main subject too, gotta love WatchTowers. the contrasting browns and blues work well together, nice one

    Hi Bev
    you know i'm going to love this one. I wish I could have been there for the TE meeting as well, this would have been totally up my alley. glad you decided to highlight the headstone with the moss on it (common for you lately), and the grime on it, it adds so much to the scene. effective vertical view too, we don't do enough of the verticals. they're almost always better. cheers
