    Hej Lars,
    Den hr ruinen r vl ett av de mest bermda "monumenten" i Berlin. Den gr strre nytta som stndig pminnelse om krigets vansinne n om den skulle ha blivit restaurerad. Omgivningen hr med hghusen beskriver Berlins snabba omvandling p senare r. WS-bilden vcker minnen till liv frn mitt besk 2017. Det r en mycket vacker interir.
    Hlsningar,

    Hello Paul,
    Red staircases are almost as good for colour photos as ladies in red. There were a lot of steps to climb in the humidity of the tropical heat, but the bright colour and the fascinating surroundings must have made the efforts easier. Both workshops are also extremely exotic, but among them I prefer the view from above.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello John,
    This is like a forest of masts separated in two parts by the diagonal avenue of water. In the bright light and calm water the masts and boats are beautifully reflected. The photo is very well exposed and the colours are crisp and clear.
    Unfortunately the note has disappeared again.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Piotr,
    This shop has a very nice faade of elegantly designed wooden details. The yellow sign brightens the view and I like the tight crop. I would probably have taken a photo like this if I had been there.

    Hello Mariusz,
    Obviously a title like this would call for my attention. As for the photo as such, it's a good composition with the staircase making a long curve that brings me up to the building. It's well exposed and perfectly sharp.
    As for the story about the standing table, it's a good story but obviously not true. According to travel.zamosc,pl "This legend has been made up quite recently by Henryk Szkutnik, an enthusiast of Hetmans Town from the Zamojskie Museum in Zamość."
    But never mind, it's quite funny anyway. As a matter of fact a "smrgsbord" refers to all the small dishes the guests can choose from, like any kind of buffet but usually not including hot dishes. The habit of serving this from a table without seating is called "gende bord" (walking table). "Walking" refers to the guests walking from their seats to the table, around it, and then back to their seats. The table doesn't go anywhere.;-)

    Hello Bev,
    This arcade is an absolutely beautiful building and we get a good view of its entrance from a slight distance. The contrast with the rather plain nearer buildings makes it look even more stunning. I hope it is carefully protected as a cultural heritage, not be changed in any way. There are nice details in the WS, and as for the main photo it is very well exposed and there are two nicely placed men bridging the gap between "us" and the arcade.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Malgo,
    Nearly all the men shown here have typical hairstyles of the 1970's, but the painting is in such a good shape that it could be new. In that case "the spirit of freedom" is still going strong despite the peace agreement. In WS #2 the monochrome mural in the background looks much more "real" and typical than the nice painting about Free Derry. (By the way, that photo is obviously straight, so why is the nearest building leaning so heavily?)
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Will,
    A nice and typical Small Town view given a certain prominence by its famous name. The pub may be doing good business by cashing in on the address. It's very empty but I guess this wasn't a very busy place even before the pandemic. At least you had a very nice weather with fine light and colours.

    Hello Jorge,
    I don't think flowers are generally forbidden, as long as they are shown in a context of, for instance, a park or a garden. Pet animals are a different thing.
    I wonder how many restaurants actually looked like this during Soviet days. This looks rather "retro chic". But this "illegal" photo gave you a revenge for the bad service. Maybe that would have been the most typical feature of Soviet nostalgia.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Miguel,
    This is a magnificent temple looking more like a palace. I don't think I ever saw it before. It's so big that it forced you to go a long way back, which indirectly helped you to capture a lively area full of visitors. Light and colours are very good, and sharpness too.
    Best regards,
    Gert
