    Hello Gert

    Another great shot from your days in Mali. I don't mind people stepping into the frame at all. They just add to the buzz of the place. I also like the inclusionof the Total sign at the top, that's couleur locale too, in a way.

    Hello Bev

    Great picture and a wonderful write-up in the note below. The kind of place I'd love as well. This makes me want to go out and travel again. Rediscovering the place where you live is nice, but there is a whole darn world out there!

    What a strange and unusual sight, Mariusz. I've never seen anything like it, let alone: would've thought this is the UK. If you'd have told me it was somewhere deep in say Laos, I'd have believed it!

    Thanks for posting it.

    Given good light, a sunny sky and a good photographer's eye...it does actually look quite nice. I suppose that's where the magic of photography is.

    Great picture, Marius. Thanks for sharing & cheers

    Ah, this is a sight I know!) I once even had a Japanese guy taking a picture of me there, then saying sorry as he left. I wonder if this is a new genre or series of pictures you're working on. Could be interesting!

    I hoped you didn't have to wait long to have the place all for yourself and I wonder whether this was before or after you...well...I just mean, there are questions.

    Lovely post, thanks for posting it & stay safe, Will.

    Lovely portrait of this guitar player, David. I like that look he gave you/us. Sepia tones are all right here as well. No flashy ultrasharp picture but a shot with lots of atmosphere. Nice one, congratulations!

    Hello Walter

    Lovely recostruction of the old baroque church, well taken in good low light. Depending on whether we'll be allowed to travel by plane or not this summer, we are considering nearby (and to us unknown) Germany as a plan B. Who'd have thought...

    Wow, what a great pov! Lovely how this captures the bends, the concrete, the stairs below and then the Portugues houses, the one modern building standing out (perfectly placed) and even a bit of sea...and no one around!

    Terrific picture, Joao. Congratulations!

    Hej Gert

    Another superb picture from Mopti, another one that brings memories here. We went looking (and found) someone to take us from Mopti to Djénné in a pirogue, back then.

    Colours are much better in the cropped version. You cropped out the man at the river at the bottom, who probably played a major role in why you framed it as it was originally, so I like both versions, cropwise.

    Your note providing the context is a great plus here, Stephen. Great background & tight formation. The fig tree features also in the novel Ségou I just read, although it is from the other (western) side of the continent.

    Glad to read work has started again and great to see you (and your wife, I assume) taking time for a day out. Let's hope things return to normal for the summer. It's been enough.

    Not just a road to an inn, but THE road to THE Wasdale Inn, Mariusz. I had a great time there, a long, long time ago & hope it is still doing fine.

    A very atmospheric picture, Daniel. I love the desaruated feel at the bottom part, the hazy effect in the distance and the strong contrast that the tree provides. The standing figure staring at the water is the finishing touch. A strong image, well taken!

    Dag Paul

    De monnik valt fel op, hij lijkt zelfs een beetje te zweven in zijn oranje gloed tegenover de eerder doffe kleur van de omgeving. Of...heb je écht een magisch moment vastgelegd?

    Dit is één van de klassieke sites in ZO-Azië waar ik zelf nog niet geraakt ben.

    Groeten uit Borgerhout
