It is very interesting to see glass blowers in work. I have seen once. Both of your photos fit perfectly to the theme. Already from the main one and without the title one can see what is going on. I like the CI, which you composed in a fine way and which shows the action very well.
Excellent series and inspiration. You got a few very good people shot either posing, working and/or in spontaneous and casual relaxed position. I like them all. The main image is a nice introduction to the series with strong graphics and colors of the large print and poster. It gives an illusion sense of perspective....and it is like a street photography style, which you are very good at.
I like this very much, Murat! A real example to prove the opposite of the nearly omnipresent decoration madness in commerce and especially in the malls. A nearly touching decoration and photo as well. Less often is more ...!
Greetings from a lot of slush in Germany! Have a nice week!
A beautiful and interesting meeting. Your photo gives the impression to the viewer of being there with you. One can clearly see that the donkey likes to be careessed by the lady. He surely doesn't feel comfortable in these surroundings.
Is it possible that I already have seen the friendly lady somewhere ... ? ;-)

It is possible, but I cannot remember where. ;-)
Greetings from Espoo, where it is snowing wet snow right now at +1 °C.
This trip obviously has been an obstacle race ;-)
Nevertheless this photo really is worth seeing. I especially like how the structures of the walls are rendered by the play of light and shadow . An impressive building! One can see that the constructor has been a follower of Vauban ...
Thank you for the interesting map view!
Greetings from wet, cool and grey Germany! Have a nice week!
A really beautiful scenery and obviously unspoilt nature. The different layers in the rock are very interesting and one almost can hear the noise of the waters. I like the framing by the autumnal leaves on both sides.
The map view here is a good addition! The nearby quarry also must be an interesting photo motif.

I think you made the best choice as main post because of the red light trails which look more appealing than just the white. You chose a good place to stand because of the curving road, which works well compositionally. I also like the reflected light on the water, which adds something in the dark space on the right.
it should be hard to discover some holes in this large net, but they have to perform that work if they want to get all the fish. Their working place is nice, on the beach under the palm trees, and they can have a bath at the end of their shift!
Le premier post est le meilleur, parce que plus sous exposé et on voit les traces rouges des feux arrières. C'est une petite récompense des voyages d'affaires, c'est ce que j'essayais de faire quand j'étais encore en activité.
very beautiful use of the light here. the wall built in adobe and the frame of the gate are really very interesting. curios as the door looks very old, spoiled and almost suspense inside the gate. yes, many americans think immigrants come to their country only to be a problem, but most of them comes to work hard and if they are there is because they have an american job anyway.
very special image. I saw a similar totem in british museum and in another place I don't remember in another country. nice view of the artist and the huge piece he is creating while we have notion of the atelier.
I am sorry your trip did not go as planned. I think you made the best of it. This is a gorgeous nocturnal photo. I like the textures and the lines that go every which way. Light management is great.
This is a beautiful composition with beautiful colors of beautiful scenery. There, I have used the same word three times in one sentence, let the language police come after me!
This is music to my flying soul :-) Yes le Bourget is one of the most famous if not the most famous airshows/exhibitions I think - at least in Europe. You had an interesting job, working for this industry is not only an interesting challenge but also rewarding. Great to see if these things finally fly and are up in the air. Great series with all the different men in their uniforms. Not many women, actually there is none in the series. This might have changed a little since 2009.
CLODO (2017/12/10 18:38:16): Look closely, there is one woman !!!
Very nice two images fitting TOM perfectly. Wow, they're so clever with their hands making the most wonderful wood work. Not sure why but I was thinking of New Zealand first but this is in the States I see. Obviously they're also making new Totem Poles living their culture. I am always glad that this is not forgotten but actually lived.
D70, ha, this was not my first but my first "real" digital camera too.
I would love to see a reindeer in the real, I never have so far. Yes cute the donkey, they're darling animals. A little stuborn but this makes them unique, they have their own head. Same here, the shopping malls have a lot of attractions before xmas. The donkey seems to be the typical animal that we conncet with Christma.s Funny the CI, obviously a little bored trying to find some food.
How nice to live so close to the nature, you don't have to travel far :-) I love to work with my zoom too, move it in and out and find the perfect distance. Okay I am also a little lazy and do not change my lense much. I should slowly change this habit, haha.
What the heck is he doing up there, hehe :-) With a good text it is just beautiful to study words and let it work in your brain, maybe think twice what it means or find your interpretation. In this case he had to find his own, playing with the letters. Very nice image and a great title too.
I was exactely thinking the same as Kath, it needs very good eyes to find the holes but it's an important task otherwise the fish will swim outside again (nice thought too - haha). Beautiful work place under the palm trees next to the sea but probably it is far less romantic than I think it is and it's "just" work. Handsome boy with the tattoo :-)
You did find some time for images despite work, how nice!!! Something that is really fun to make and it does look great: The light trails form the cars came out really good. Nice also that we can see the harbor. Great to be in these places in the winter time, there is a totally other mood than in the summer and it has less tourists too if at all any. I have been to this area but this is meanwhile really a long time ago. Excellent two images.
An original and interesting contribution to the theme. It is no wonder if the work had taken over 6 months. The totem pole is huge and has all kinds of forms. It paid off to look through your archives.
It could be stressed looking at its laid-back ears, although truthfully I don't know much about animal behaviour. Interesting event. How is it promoted? Do people make the connection that Joseph and Mary travelled to Bethlehem on a donkey (as the story goes). Two very good documentary images.
Excellent choice for the theme. It must be difficult to find all the holes in such huge nets.
Would love to be somewhere warm right now!
feather (2017/12/10 14:37:24): Really heavy snow in the Midlands, but so far we've missed it despite Arctic temperatures. The snow we had last week didn't hang around fortunately.Everlasting (2017/12/10 12:29:03): Our first snowfall this morning. The garden looks beautiful. Once it’s stops or stops a little, I’m going out with my camera and glass ball. 😊
