Right now I am watching the Cowboys and the Packers on a 42 inch hi-def digital TV. A much more enjoyable experience than it would be with this small (probably) black and white set. You can see a bit of the rabbit ear antenna at the back of the TV. I chose to present this in monochrome in deference to the era.

Farmers playing domino in Vinales, Cuba.

Vinales, Cuba

We walked along a road through the 'mogotes' outside Vinales when we came across a farmers' house. They were playing domino and they invited us in. We sat with them and enjoyed their hospitality and pleasant company. Amazing people of Vinales.

ice braking on Danube III

Budapest, Margaret-bridge, Hungary

I wanted to grab the chance to take pictures of the Danube during the ice braking period - imagine how cold the temperature if the river is full with ice: it was below -10 and very windy. However this "bad" weather led me to create good pics as it was so clear and super sharp.
Hope you will enjoy these series! :)

From this point of view this building looks like a sheet of paper. A curious optical effect.

Temple In The Woods

Although I have given this image a gentle name it is actually an abandoned phosphorous plant near Gatineau used during the war.

A man and his cigar.

Boston, United States

I was waling around in little Italy in Boston when I noticed this interesting man lighting a cigar and blowing the smoke on by-passers. Managed to get this shot just before he fled.

Lone Willow, Lake Wanaka, New Zealand

Lake Wanaka, New Zealand

My 5th fav pic of 2016 was made at dawn in July on the South Island at Lake Wanaka. This is an iconic spot & the lone willow tree was fortunately located a 1/8th mile walk from my hotel, sheer luck. My son and I saw a painting of this in the hotel, when I asked where it was, the waiter smiled & pointed out the window. Not sure what type of birds these were but glad they held still for the 30" exposure, one of my 1st of the morning, which in turn, allowed for some subtle movement with the clouds

From the travel archives ... :-)

Senga, Malawi

If anyone happens to know this man ...

I met him in 2007, in Senga, Malawi, on the shores of lake Malawi. I promised to send him this pic, but the email address he gave me didn't work.

Who knows, maybe, after all those years, I can still get it to him :-) ... feel free to share this on social media, if you think it might help to get it to him...

Thanks in advanced, Jespah

Cérémonie traditionnelle Masaï

Kenya

The Maasai are divided into patrilineal clans and age classes. The men are in turn children, warriors then elders, each of these passages is accompanied by initiatory rites. Girls marriages are often negotiated by fathers before birth. Within a single age group, non-marital relationships are considered natural. The Maasai live in manyattas, small huts, made of dung around a wood frame. The Maasai are nomads, but they tend more and more towards sedentary living, given the pressure of governments.

Taking photos along Lake Erie, Ontario in winter is an experience. It seems like you're on another planet!You just stand there in awe and gaze at its beauty! Without the sun it looks desolate but when the sun is shining it takes your breath away!!

Dawn. Port of New Bedford  Massachusetts.

New Bedford. Massachusetts., United States

A few months ago, whilst looking for pictures around the fishing port of New Bedford Massachusetts, I wondered into the dock and gazed at a beautiful sunrise behind some trawlers. I looked at these vessels, in the calm water of the dock, and then, I started to think about these boats, when they leave the port and sail into the fishing grounds out at sea. The men who work these trawlers often work in some of the worst weather conditions we ever imagine, and I can only respect these fishermen

Mountains of Almaty - Ili Alatau on the Tyan Shan

Almaty, Kazakhstan

We were planning to climb the Amangeldy peak on the Almaty Mountains, but the night's snow followed by the day's sun increased the risk of avalanches. Instead we walked up to around 4000 meters, choosing our path carefully so that we do not trigger an avalanche. We ascended for hours along strenuous ultra-steep paths while observing avalanches around. The reward was the magical view, engraved in my memory forever, a little taste of it I share with you. https://www.facebook.com/evagoras.photos/

Vietnam 20

Vietnam

688 kilometers aboard the SE1 in 14 hours on the trans Vietnamese remains a fascinating and unforgettable experience. Getting up at 6:00, roused by the frantic rhythm of our train, I could let myself go to observe the extraordinary landscapes and life in the stations. The train winds along slopes, cliffs, rice paddies. We cross rusted bridges, crossing small stations, level crossings, only signs of civilization. Here no coffee, but a salesperson of rice noodle soup, traditional breakfast.

Lucerne #1 - Le Pont de la Chapelle et La Tour

Lucerne., Switzerland

Kapellbrück & Wasserturm ou Pont de la Chapelle et la Tour de l'Eau.
Ce château d’eau octogonal, haut de plus de 34 mètres, vit le jour vers 1300 et faisait initialement partie du mur d’enceinte de la ville.
Ses fonctions ont été autrefois multiples : cette tour a notamment servi de salle d’archives, salle des coffres, prison, et de salle de torture. Aujourd’hui, elle est devenue l’un des monuments emblématiques de Lucerne que j'ai eu le plaisir de découvrir.

Baltimore's Inner Harbor in Winter

Baltimore's Inner Harbor, Maryland, United States

The light was divine. It was single digits in Baltimore; snow was in the forecast, but it hadn't started yet. Everything had an early morning, just before the snow starts, stillness to it. The harbor was eerily quiet. I guess everyone was hibernating, conserving their warmth. Bundled up, I walked around near the Aquarium to stay warm when the small ripples in the water and the reflections in this scene caught my attention…that and the divine quality of the light.

Austria

Yet another frosty image from the flat eastern part of Austria! The lack of snow this winter, together with freezing temperatures, poses a problem to farmers. The winter grains have no protection from the cold, and there will be very little moisture in the ground in spring, as there is no snow to melt. But winter isn't over yet, and snow may still come.
