    Hello Luciano,
    I don't understand how you could avoid a selfie in at least the main photo. ;-) Both photos show us city views in an original way with a currency theme. It was an amusing idea.
    But the exchange offices do not entirely belong to the past. You can't bring your Euros to Sweden or Denmark and expect them to be accepted everywhere. In fact only a few souvenir shops and big department stores would probably take them. And there are many shops and cafés that have stopped taking cash at all.
    Best regards,

    Hello Silvio,
    This is a stunningly beautiful triptych with quite original attached pieces at the bottom. The central part copied in black and white shows that this must have been a masterpiece. It's very sad that it was so severely damaged by the thieves. The WS show us fine closer views of details.

    Hello Jean,
    It's an interesting sculpture and a photo that really calls for attention, mainly for the way you cropped and balanced the photo. You found an amusing and perfectly logical title. The WS are good complements, especially #2 where we see the entire work as the artist had designed it.
    Kind regards,

    Hello David,
    At a quick glance this would probably seem like a fairly ugly wall, but the bright eyes and red lips of the yellow ball make me smile. Then I realize that the wrought iron is quite nice and the green door also brightens the view. You found fine details where nothing should have been expected.

    Hello Daniel,
    The peculiar clock tower is a strong focal point, but I am just as impressed by the good light on so many objects all the way from the tables in the foreground to the buildings in the far distance. The photo is very well exposed under the dark sky and the distant lights are superbly reflected.

    It's a sharp, well exposed and nicely cropped photo. There are just enough light clouds to give some substance to the background.

    Hello Ike,
    I haven't travelled anywhere for a few years, so I don't know if these living statues are still popular, but I used to see them everywhere. It's impossible not to be impressed by how they can stand perfectly still for such long times despite aching legs or arms. You captured this model well in a perfectly balanced photo with the sign as a comparison.

    Hello György,
    I like the sense of action in all these photos, and especially in this one how the light shines through the feathers on the edge of their wings, as seen against the darker background. The reflections in the water are very nice too. It's also a well proportioned photo.
    Have a nice weekend,

    Hello Krzysztof,
    This time there is no doubt this apartment has been abandoned. The upper window is left open and inside the lower ones there is only a lot of junk. The façade would have needed some maintenance too. The photo is well cropped and very sharp.

    Hello Jorge,
    It's a rather strange view of the tree carrying fruits but no leaves. It's a simple but interesting and graphically nice view looking like it was arranged by the hands of an artist. Light and sharpness are well managed.

    Hello Paul,
    One more set of three well taken photos from this area which seems so strange for a Scandinavian atheist like me. The buildings are really pretty and it's amazing to see streets with no cigarette buts or empty beer cans. The note is very interesting. What a pity those beghard communities have not been preserved. It would have been interesting to compare the tidiness. ;-)
    As for the note to WS #2 there would be a lot fewer pictures on TE if nobody would post a photo similar to what someone else showed of the Westminster Abbey, Giza pyramids or the Taj Mahal several years ago.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    A well taken photo with an exciting atmosphere. The moon rivals the street lights for brightness. The church is nicely illuminated and the palms are clearly visible against the black sky. The old houses are really beautiful.

    This is as nice as a few days ago, but I am surprised that you post almost the same photo twice. I think this was taken 1/4 second before the one you showed last Monday.

    Hello Luis,
    This is a charming statue and it looks so real that I could almost believe it's a "living statue". Poor woman sitting like that for hours! ;-) This close view makes a much greater impression than the entire monument, although it's a good complement to see all of it in the WS. In this view the flowers are given a generous 1/3 of the size which makes the photo even more attractive.

    You found a great view of the lake with the steep hills covered with vineyards and a nice village near the water. There is a slight haze under the clouds in the distance, but it was generally a clear and bright day with a fine light and lovely colours.

    A very good composition with the strange dark peaks neatly balanced by the low buildings and church basking in the sun. It's a fascinating scenery and a well taken photo. I never heard of this place.
