Thank you for commenting on 'Untitled', with a lily and a leaf. It has been a while since I have wielded a camera so I am having to get a feel for things I already know. I do have to say it is like riding a bike, you never forget the basics. And I had forgotten how comfertable I am behind a lens. Anyways thank you for your encouragement.

Thanks for dropping by Fresh Linen and for offering your advice. On this occasion I'll pass on it as the light levels are exactly as I wanted them, that's why the photo was taken at dusk. :) Everyone else seems to want it brighter so I guess that makes me the weirdo here.

Thanks sam for commenting on "Waterfront Patterns". It was a sight that grabbed me immediately as soon as I saw the little red ship sail in front of the red building. I also agree about the quality but you have to realise my compact Fuji F31 only has x3 zoom and I was on the other side of The River Mersey, which at that point is three-quarters to a mile wide. But I'm glad you liked the composition.

WOW! It's a great honour to receive a comment from a consul "in carne ed ossa"!! Many thanks Sam for your kind comment on "Pisa". Your point re the framing of the shot is well taken!
Re the first part of your comment, I was flabbergasted when I first learned that even DURING the building process of this tower, the builders KNEW that it would be leaning!! Did they take their chances anyway? Did they know that it would lean but not collapse? Did they mean to generate a hefty source of income for the later-to-be-Italy?! Who knows!

Thank you for the very precise comment, but I have to confess, when I took these photos I was just in a hurry to shoot, because I had just 5-6 seconds, the gull flew down and flew away. The title is waiting, but this beauty was just waiting for me to take the picture. I was not thinking about the focus, horizon...... And frankly, I like more natural things, I don't like modifying them too much.
