I did give it a like even though I do not particularly like modern architecture. Interesting in that this image looks like a cave with a mysterious escalator going off into the ceiling. The people are a nice context inclusion to the scene.
A nice b&w of this great lady.
Hopefully, nobody has been hurted.
Of course a great damage and very spectacular fire. Hopefully too, the structure has resisted. Today with donations they already have 750 millions € for the repair. They estimate it will take between 10 & 15 years to have it repaired. It is not in fact the first time this lady faces fires. true also every body was shocked. It was the most visited monument in france (perhaps because it is free entry).
I remember in 1985, we took some pictures around the cathedral when we married in Paris.
What an interesting series. It completely overwhelms my earlier phone choice. It looks like a big winner to me. My favorite is #3 diagonal of the plane against the against the wispy clouds. It also emphasizes the bulky body proving it can really fly. #2 really shows the size of the aircraft with the man dwarfed by the plane. I also like the barge images a lot, with the plane parts taking up most of the boat, except for the red car. What is the river? I have images of wind generator parts on a truck, but they appear tiny next to this massive plane. It must have been a real thrill to be part of building this plane
What a fun series. I think my favorite is #2 with the fellow laughing with his bud and wearing his laurel jauntily. Then #'s 8 & 9 as both face the camera well. #8 is funny because the fellow looks so uncomfortable with his awkward 'hat' while # 9 seems to be some kind of crucifixion tableau , anyway the crimson shawls add a lot of contrast. Your main is next with the, 'I'm so beautiful,' pose. The man's look of amused tolerance really makes the image. Of course in Hawaii it's all about leis for the graduates but leis are for any special occasion. GLF, Pat
B&W is a great choice for this delightful snow scene. The road leads the eye right to those lovely trees. They look like they were touched with an ice fog. I can just see you out capturing these images in your tee-shirt and sandals.

You know what ? I'm not sure I turned it into b&w! I checked against the original picture and it is not really clear.
Wow, I've never seen a spiderweb dusted with snow! Very cool. I do have some snow dusted crocus outside though. That snow and spring flowers thing is a delightful classic.We're having the same kind of weather, On day it snows and one day it's 19 degrees Centigrade, P
I much prefer the main, I have lots of images of Stellar Jays like the Ci but none like the amazing one in the main. It is hilarious. I wonder how he got his top-knot so messed up? I remember dancing in Golden Gate Park in the late 60's and it is still a lovely place.
Is the bottom of the swimming pool made of glass :) .....
I do not know If I really could go and swim.
Great for the tom.
Chris Holt (2019/04/16 07:20:23): Thanks J Marc,
I am pretty sure the swimming pool is not glass-bottomed. Rather than paying for a hotel room I bought a coupon to buy a Hoegaarden beer in the adjoining Bar and made it last :).... Very good value beer.
Interesting pool and activity. I can see the pull to the edge, but the selfies? I have never understood the need to make selfies so much. It's fun when you are with your significant other, but some people do very dangerous things when doing a selfie.
Interesting images. The LV gives a great overview of this place. Almost a scene to turn a movie. A sugar cane plantation has also this aura for me of the times when slaves were held, someone working hard under the sun while the owners sat in the shade drinking their afternoon tea. We wouldn't know exactely ... but it is definitely interesting to dive into the history of a place and learn about the past during our holidays.
guillaumejm (2019/04/15 19:17:20): There is a lot of things in our history that we must never forget !. And this applies to almost every population . After all depends on what people will consider the past : as a model or as a good exemple of what to do or not .....
The dust hits you ... I can completely see that - haha. And also "smell" this strange odor that you only find in these second-hand book shops, I assume he sells antique books maybe, rare editions etc.? Okay maybe both, I can also see something pink which is probably something newer. Great the guy which I think is a typical Italian intellectual with the beard and glasses, he streams out something noble. He must have time to read a lot :-)
This is really funny. How come that not one person seems to relax? Nobody will ever be interested in their selfies THAT much - okay maybe for 5 seconds - haha. It's definitely a very cool pool and a fun image. Well spotted.
You really captured lovely light in this unique view of Dublin. The contrast between the bright foreground and the clouds dumping rain in the distance is quite delightful. The LV give even nicer light and detail. GLV, Pat
The pano is my favorite of these images, The clouds give great detail to the Sky and the blue/green color combination feels very peaceful. I recognize the cane growing from my 70's time on Maui when cane was more important than visitors. There weren't any cows like yours although there were cows & cowboys. I did try the website to find out more about these interesting buildings, but I was scared away by the unsafe warning.
guillaumejm (2019/04/14 20:45:03): It was not a securised site by https : I've changed the link to an other site :).
That's an interesting view point. I have never experienced the city in this way with a forest but far more with the seagulls barking. The two chimneys are kind of famous, not in the sense that they are pretty but they belong to the harbor. I can also see the famous Aviva Stadium and others things. I was there in January for a birthday party. Nice image with a great light.
Fastfood even for the Sisters? I thought they only eat from their gardens :-) Wonderful slice of Sister life, things that often remain hidden, behind the thick walls of a monastery. Naples sounds like a street photographer's paradise. Great image.
Everlasting (2019/04/14 18:35:18): it is Barbara, you would love it.
Sorry Patricia, I missed out on these fantastic posts. Fortunately they reappeared as top of the ToM, allowing me to look at them. The pano is breathtaking!
I am not very active on the site at the moment, lot of things happend last couple of weeks. Not much time for photography.
amazing view of the small seed, so perfect and with texture. my close up photos aren't so closer like this.. the image of the seed remind me an artistic installation of a famous chinese artist who created thousands of artificial seeds made of ceramic and painted.
