    Hello MALgo,
    I see that you've a fantastic time in NI and you were treated with fabulous weather.
    What a beautiful view of the cliffs - all three of them.
    Amazingly green everywhere I see - the raw wind of the Atlantic Ocean gently brushing the cliffs of grasses on a cool summer day.
    What a pity this place is closed. Yeah, I clearly see the bridge ( a tiny rope bridge ). I would definitely cross it. It would be so fun and exciting even if I've slightly fear of height.
    Thanks for sharing - it's very beautiful place.

    Hello Ronny,
    The splendours of the Bagan plains , dotted with thousands of temples across the horizon , mystical and enchanting.
    This photo is the best example of it.
    I must say that, you were lucky to have a driver who knew where to go for a perfect scene. This place is one of my wish list. Seeing this on photo, I'm so envious you.
    One very minor thing, the sun gave a beautifully glow but the temples lost the glow from the sun.
    Nevertheless, it's still a marvelous shot.
    Thanks for sharing the Bagan classic.

    Hello Christine,
    As a butterfly lover, I find your butterflies are joy and delightful to watch and fall in love with them especially the main photo.
    I do agree with you, they are very difficult to photograph. I'm satisfied if one or two came out good. But you've three wonderful photos of different butterflies or more in your butterfly collections.
    They are indeed very cute and colourful flying species on Earth.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hello Jean,
    It's a charming village and beautiful blue sky to die for. I wonder how come all your photos have wonderful sky. Either you're lucky or you watched the weather forecast everyday.
    Anyway, it's a beautiful view point taken from a bridge. The river flowing gently down on the rocks to the hill. What stand out are the autumnal tree ( stunning color ) and the church against the green hill and the blue sky.
    A charming crispy clear picture too.

    It was a well worth stopping and what a stunning moment it was.
    I just love how the sunlight bursting through the clouds, just at the right time and moment. I noticed that it was taken in Spring. That's why you've the amazing soothing spring landscape and the lovely shapes of trees to liven up the whole scene.

    Hello Costantino,
    For sure, I do love churches in Greece.
    As it was built in 1936, this church looks so modern and new - the clean structures. Lovely arches and windows. The clock tower standing tall overlooking the seafront. And I also see something on the right side of the tower - look like a shape of Eiffel Tower :-)
    This church looks amazing at night. I like the trees created a dark shadows on the wall of this church. Simply beautiful.

    I was in Hoi An, of course I've to go to see it.
    You were there in rainy season, I see it's so greenery, everywhere. Feel fresh and cool.
    To go inside to the temple at the entrance , was exciting and fun with the little shuttle ride through the jungle.
    All your photos showing the ruin temples in great ancient atmospheric in deep dark colours structures by the rain and over growth of natures in every gaps of walls. So beautiful and refreshing.

    Pardon, what time is it in, again? oh,it's almost 21:15 pm time to go back to hotel, said your Father. :-)
    I'm always find so fascinating to know the Time of the world when I see one in airport or hotel. A 'Weltzeituhr' like this one will do me fine. I'll just stood there watching the world as the 'Time Flying Away' from day to night.
    I do like the Solar System above - amazing planet of Saturn in the clear blue sky.

    I wouldn't have guessed , I could see Ronald Reagan statue in Budapest. I was supposed to visit this city well as you know.......next time if I do visit, I'll definitely say 'Hi' to him in person :-)
    It's like you were on the Budapest Walk of Fame. To me, I think he was the best of the American President and quite a charmer as well.

    Wow, isn't she looks beautiful. What I see and imagine it's the most attractive zombie ( so natural ) in all the zombie movies I've seen. Did she tries to kiss you? :-)
    I've tried this in Malaysia, an Indian family. At the beginning , its tasted awful .....but at the end I quite like it the more I tried ( mostly for fun ). Yeah, I did feel the effect - more dizziness than stimulant :-)
    This is a super sharp Portrait and natural. I do like the ear-rings , super cool on her.

    As an ex-Malaysian ,it's nice to see someone from Malaysia in TE again.
    I don't mind to travel locally if you've the best of 'Pulauan' in the east Malaysia. Funny enough, I haven't been to any of this islands , more the west part.
    This definitely a real 'Mati Pokok Besar' dominates the whole scene f/g with the beautiful serene sunset as b/g yet quite an eerie feel to it - like tiny sticking fingers reaching for the sky.

    Hello Paul,
    Just 'One night in Bangkok' and you found a place like this . I must say, a shortcut worth encountered - such a lovely romantic scene , so quiet and peaceful ( normally Bangkok is very busy and noisy). I could imagine two lovebirds standing on the bridge , romancing away to the bright light reflecting the beauty surrounds them.
    Or you, saying goodbye to Bangkok with heartbroken :-)
    Honestly, I've seen this place before when I was in Bangkok two or three times. Maybe I didn't take any shortcut :-)
    I do like the WS2 - it's totally different moods. It's more like the force of power with the target to destroy , the position of the cannons. Thankfully, now it's just for the show.
    All three photos are stunning , even in the darkness and the beautiful blue sky you have. I can't say it's not Thailand, because on the b/g ( left ) I see a Thai white Stupa standing proudly as the M.O.D. building.
    Thanks for sharing this wonderful shortcut.

    Hello Jean,
    It's so lovely to see a parade like this one - all the ladies dressed up elegantly with the fine colourful individual masks to suit the theme maybe it was the Carnival of Venice. A very distinctive Venetian masks I see but the school children dressed as penguins , which I don't see the coherence. I think its all about fun and participation for the school kids and adults alike.
    Why cropping, the more the merrier in this scene.
    This coming months , over here similar to this kind of parade and carnival....all have been cancelled :-(

    Hello Luciano,
    It's a very beautiful and unique window decorated with 'hanging colorful pots' all kind of green plants, some with flowers to cheer up the pastel wall.
    There are two reasons I can think of. One, they use a long tube to water the plants in precise position to the pots as its takes a longer of course. Two, the people who lives on the second floor are expert on 'Stilt Walking' or Giants :-)
    I see that most of the plants don't need much watering if this wall is in the shade most of the time.
    Thanks for sharing this shot, maybe an useful idea to copy.

    Hello Gert,
    A scene like this, as you said , 'Jakarta long ago' is a photograph to be well treasured and remembered for the next next generations to see like a 'Time Capsule'.
    This photo, the tracks littered with garbage and and junk, looks a bit overwhelming but I see the beauty and 'happy-go-lucky' people living in this poor conditions and very patriotic to the country - that's why all the flags are so clean and new.
    On WS1 - those days the makeshift homes or shacks were not heavily congested as we seen in these days. Kind of a bit of fresh air and freedom to move around. The clean and new flags again.
    :-) After 23 years or 44 years, I don't see much different concerning with slums - the slums are getting more and more spread out and thousand times more rubbish too. The old city has becomes mega cosmopolitan city but the disadvantage is the city is sinking. Soon, the entire city will be completely submerged by the sea.

    Dang my eyes hurt....from the yellow filters again :-)
    Boy! you see that exhilarating , traffic coming at you at 85 miles per hour. I wonder how would it be like 'frozen' in the middle of road.
    Don't we all feel young at heart sometimes. You do need that cause you've indeed a long long road home. All I see spaces of spaces of wild openness leading to nowhere , the roads just ended in sight. Pace yourself , a rough crossing back through the traffic again, not running I hope?
    I feel for your dodgy knee :-) Good luck!
    Btw, a great shot regardless all the running you made. I hope you made it back home safely and have your knee examined :-)

    Hello Gert,
    Strange, at a glance....it's exactly what I see in this photo, calm and friendly atmosphere.
    Suddenly back to the hustle and bustle of the big city swarming with people ( young and old )in all directions , the noise and smell, the honking and shouting...the whole street in disarray.
    What I find most interesting is the vintage old cars with white patches ( are they taxis ) and one Tuk-Tuk ?
    No sign of curry restaurants I see, I wonder if you do fancy Indian cooking since you've been many times in India.
    When I was in Malaysia, I always watched Bollywood movies. I never knew it came from Calcutta :-) Mostly, it's a love story and a lot of dancing & singing.
    Too bad, it's just a glimpse of the mosque.

    Hello MALgo,
    It's a fantastic idea to leave a message on 'Pebbles' with colourful painting. I hope these paints are ego-friendly.
    The more of these painted pebbles scattered around all over the rock , making it even more interesting and fun to look at. I definitely like the sign on WS1, 'They are here to be photographed and appreciated' that's exactly what you've done.
    I do like the harbour view. Very peaceful and 'low-key'. An unusual building ( right ) on the wall, kind a cute little boat-house/station.
