Hello Bev and Paul, Swedish children (and...

Hello Bev and Paul,
Swedish children (and probably geese too) are taught that you drive on the right side but you walk on the left, so you will face oncoming cars. Clearly these birds are careful to...

To foxy: hands

Thank you Loong,
Yes, of course I have eaten with my hands, at least on my earlier journeys to India, and especially in the southern states. When I was young I usually had my meals at cheap places,...

The Afghan photos were made with a Nikon scanner which I no longer have. But more important than the scanner was probably the program downloaded from the net, called VueScan. It's not free but not...

To jean113: owned by companies

Thank you Jean,
These bikes are all owned by a handful of companies. I think you have to download a mobile app and use your phone to rent one. Apparently payment is transferred straight from your...

To Royaldevon: stolen?

Thank you Bev,
These bikes are all owned by companies that can probably trace them anywhere. I have never tried any (too old!) but I suppose you can't use them unless you pay for a ride with a...

I didn't remember your photo but I looked it up now, and I had written a critique. I liked it then and I like it now. I was a bit surprised to find such a large group but I guess...

To Royaldevon: size

Thank you Bev,

The street is not as steep as it looks in this compressed perspective. She couldn't possibly have got tired.

This photo is the same size that I have used for several years, a...

To kasianowak: ws

Thank you Kasia,
Sometimes the shadows/highlights is a wonderful tool. The WS looks much better now than it originally did.
Have a nice week you too.

Thank you Malgo.
