Some beautiful cars in colours from the Candy Store ! Another amazing collection and worth a close inspection. All these cars must be kept under wraps for most of the year and wait for summer. Thanks for another visit to modern art.
Hi again GarryRF Thanks for the kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed this collection of photos. You are correct that these cars are definitely kept warm and secure in garages all over Thunder Bay during the harsh winter months, which makes it all the more special to see them out and about in the summertime. Just another reason why I love summers in the Great White North, eh.
I like your comparison: it's a feat that we take for granted, but at the time was astonishing. Actually, I'm not sure I really DO take the great cathedrals for granted, as I try to imagine their building without advanced mathematics or heavy lifting equipment.
Thanks for the heads up on that. There are few things I enjoy doing more in Europe than to spend a half day exploring a great cathedral! If people haven't read it yet, I'd highly recommend Ken Follett's great book, "The Pillars of the Earth" , a work of fiction set in Medieval times and focused on the building of these great churches.
Peggy's Cove is found about 45 km south of Halifax, Nova Scotia, on the East Coast of Canada . Formed by plate tectonics and sculpted by glaciers and the tides of the Atlantic, its rugged landscape attracts tourists and locals...
Originally aired in 2011, this Nova episode is being rebroadcast on my local PBS station and, presumably others, on Christmas evening. Of interest to most visitors to Europe, if only as an integral part of the skylines, it's worth watching...
I've been in Prague a few times, and taken a lot of pictures, but I'm blown away by the new scenes and new eye on familiar ones. Really great pictures. As for the Charles Bridge...my best pictures of it are from the river. Once you get on the bridge...well, you can't really see it for the fascinating people scenes!
A great piece! Prague is one of my favorite cities in Europe and your post helped me remember exactly why I love visiting it. You've a great eye and the ability to see photographic opportunities -- your images are excellent! Regarding the Charles Bridge, I think the best images of the bridge itself are taken at a distance. But images from the top showing people, the row of saints and vendors are also fun and memorable.
This was my second time in Prague, the first was in summer and I can tell you the city changes completely. In winter it gets more mysterious and fascinating and you can take awesome pictures from the bridge but the best moment is at the sunrise or it will be packed with people. Thanks a lot for your nice words, they're really appreciated!
Thank you very much! I'm still learning though. I have an architectural and geometrical view of the world since this is my educational background but sometimes I get frustrated when I picture the final image in my mind but the lack of technique makes the shot different from what I wanted. But I'm working on it That bridge is stunning from every point of view, to me is more a matter of time, sunrise is the best moment to shoot it.
