    Ciao Silvio,
    it must be a great place to store wine I suppose, with the tick walls cooling over summer.
    Nice repeated motif of the arch here.
    Pleasant subtle light.
    Very well done,

    Ciao Luciano,
    Lovely composition from the souvenir shop. The little paintings are so colorful and make lovely repeated motif.
    Again, I don't really have space for more souvenirs...
    The best way to get them is to take a photo of them :)
    Very well done,

    Czesc Krzysztof,
    Przyjemny dworek, szkoda ze zaniedbany. Ma nawet te fotogeniczne oczy w dachu.
    Ogrod wyglada prawie tak jak moj... zartuje nie jest az tak zle.
    Pogoda troche w kratke ale i tak bardzo kolorowo.
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

    Hi Ike,
    This is the part of Germany which I never had a chance to visit. Quite an extraordinary design of the gate.
    Very well photographed from well selected angle,

    Hi Ian,
    I am searching though your Morocco archives because I consider to go there this year. Mainly for a couple of days to Marrakech so I need to browse thorough otherspeople reportages to find good tips.
    Lovely styreet scene here.

    Bonjour Jean,
    I know it is an archival picture and hence it lacks your present day high quality but it is a great souvenir of the exotic trip. The reson I actually looked into this part of your gallery is that I seriously consider going to Morocco this year and hopefully I will be able to make a trip to Ait Benhaddou as well.
    Great reportage,

    Hi Keith,
    Your photo attracted my attention because I have quite recently visited Bath but I am still sharing my photos from Poland taken before that trip.
    I think what you mean in your note is the difference between the "unitary authority" and "ceremonial county", as listed for Bath in wikipedia:

    Unitary authority
    Bath and North East Somerset

    Ceremonial county
    Somerset

    I have the same when I post photos from Middlesbrough: I use North Yorkshire although Middlesbrough is a separate council:

    Unitary authority
    Middlesbrough

    Ceremonial county
    North Yorkshire

    This was quite a puzzle for me when I moved into UK.

    Very original focus on the detail of the abbey,

    Hi Murat,
    I suppose rich people don't know what to do with the money so they are buying strange clocks. For us these days I suppose it is beneficial because we can admire a nice collection they assembled.
    I am glad you took the risk of photographing against the rules,

    Hi Jorge,
    Quite sad that the fruit has no chance to ripe. It feels like a waste.
    Nevertheless the result is very photogenic. It feels so strange and unexpected seeing only fruit on the tree. The colors are great too with the blue sky making lovely background for that.
    Excellent final effect,

    Hi Chris,
    Excellent quality here.
    So clear and sharp. I am also impressed that you managed so well with the polarizing filter inside. I noticed that polarizing filter too often interferes with autofocus when I take photos in dark interiors or even in the evening when the sun is low already.
    Even though I am following rules, I thing no photography rule is a terrible one.
    Shops don't want to be photographed, Parents don't want their children to be photographed, borders cannot be photographed, interiors too often cannot be photographed, etc
    But occasionally I see places which advertise now that you can take photos and they encourage you to share your photos to advertise their place.
    Great reportage here,

    Hi Bev,
    after seeing your photos from this charming destination I gave it a thought. Yesterday the forecast was ok so we wanted to go for a trip but the forecast was better for the north so we venture north instead.
    Quite a peculiar structure here. I wonder whether they can have some practical application like the beehive or a box for owls?
    Great reportage,

    Hi Ike,
    Great series of photos. The extraordinary location of this monastery is well apparent from your photos. I like the little dome which adds some character to the architecture. The setting within the desert makes a great contrast of the nature and civilization.
    Pleasant warm light in the main upload.
    Very well done.

    Hi Paul,
    a very colorful presentation from Belgium.
    Nice to also see it in the context of the street and people passing by in the workshop.
    I think EU is quite free to travel within, are you not tempted to discover some countries which you didn't visit before?

    a very charming port indeed.
    The white boats of all shapes make a nice theme. Just behind a green white lighthouse and further ahead a beach.

    Hi Ian,
    We are free to travel but at the moment when I am writing we have a torrential rain. So we are effectively also confined to travel not too far due to the unpredictable autumnal weather.
    This is a beautiful spot here with the charming waterfall.
    You have well included some scenery in the foreground.
    Very well seen and captured,

    Ciao Luciano,
    As disgusting as the green algae are to see on the beach, you have made a perfect use of them and you created a very original presentation thanks to the low point of view.
    The boat on the horizon enhances the interest very much.
    Great work,
