Postcards from my European holiday

I recently concluded our annual summer vacation in Europe. Most of my pictures can be found in my Leice M-E review. I have attached the other pictures below.

  1. Oooo I’d love to have one of those bikes in the last pic of bikes …Has the look of a retro cruiser. Nice ! Superb pics and hope you had a fabulous time ! Thanks for sharing ..2 thumbs UP

  2. Great captures! You have a very interesting eye and pull me in! I especially liked the juxtaposition of the woman elder with swollen legs, rolled down socks and her little dog juxtaposed beneath the Cartier sign. I also thought the photo of the small sphere on the railway tracks was lovely in its simplicity and color contrast. Thank you for sharing…

    1. I generally look out for juxtapositions. The easy ones are old-new wealthy-poor etc. When I took that shot it reminded me of the current economic situation. Thanks.

    1. The kid on the metal chain was in Munich next to the Opera House.

      I never knew freshly pressed would keep my phone pinging nonstop with comments and followers. It is a great experience. Thanks.

      1. oh yeah freshly pressed is a great thing – gives the reader and writer abundant opportunities to interact.
        thanks for detailing that photo out; your pics are lovely.

      1. I have been to a similarly themed museum in Vietnam but I’m sure that one is more sophisticated. Ok, I should definitely visit if I get the chance to go back to Amsterdam. Thanks! 🙂

      2. The museums are sophisticated in Prague but I think all tortures are gross. 😉

        In Prague they call everything a museum. Some of them are just small enough to fit in a small house. The city is great though. Must visit if you have not done. Fantastic overall ambience.

      3. I don’t really like looking at morbid things. But I would, if it will educate me about history and culture. That is very interesting what you day about Prague. So many places to go to but so little time! 🙂

      4. Prague is a beautiful and small city. Very walkable. What I like about European cities is that usually there is a city center around which everything revolves. There is a river running through the city. The street music scene is great. Food is brilliant these days. Caters to any type of budget.

      5. You seem to really like Prague. Thank you for sharing your insights about the place. I like places that have that old fashioned, historic ambience.

      6. Haven’t been to the UK yet. Waiting for the pound to devalue. Maybe next year. Dublin is on my list. Have a few friends and colleagues. They’ll kill me if I don’t.

  3. Some of the pictures were extremely interesting. Some actually look like they could be from anywhere. I loved the one with the railroad tracks. The one with the man in mid air was great. Thanks for posting.

      1. Maybe he’s travelling the neighboring capitals. I swear I’ve seen that guy all spring and early summer in the inner city during tourist season.

    1. That’s a simple but elaborate trick. I won’t break the suspense. You should see it. I guess it was done by someone in America has got talent. You can check Youtube.

      1. Yes. She should have been tired after a long day. Can’t blame her. The lighting was perfect for that shot. Summer is a time of weddings all around the world.

    1. That’s a secret I guess. I am not explaining the principle because it will take away the magic. There is a youtube video of someone performing that on America has got talent. You should check that out.

      Thanks for dropping by.

  4. Great collection! I love how humor and seriousness are put together in the same album. Saw lots of ‘suspending’ street performers in Barcelona myself in July.

      1. Do you actively find scenes/things that present an agenda or are you just naturally observant? Or do you do both?

      2. This trip was actually with my family. So I shot what came on the way as we were shuffling between museums, castles and town centers. I have developed a routine where I can shoot something rapidly as soon as I see it. I do not worry too much about framing the subject etc. It has taken 4 years since my first point-n-shoot. 🙂

      3. Wow that is very impressive! As somebody who has no experience in photography I am surprised that most of your photos are not premeditated for a long time and yet they say so much – if you don’t mind can I reblog some of your photographs for my blogposts in the future? It’ll all be referenced of course 🙂

  5. I really like the black and white railroad tracks. The levitating guy made me stop and think for a minute. Very nice captures!

    1. Thanks for your comments. Yes, I like to observe things and try and make connections between things in a frame. Sometimes I succeed and many times I do not. That’s one of the things that inspires me to shoot more and try harder.

  6. Great photographs! I have been to many cities in Europe, including Prague, but you showed me something new 🙂 Lovely work.

    1. I am happy you like the pics. The levitating guy is a nice trick. I don’t want to break the thrill of you want to see it. There is a YouTube video of someone doing the same in America has got talent.

    1. Hi Graham,
      Thanks for your comments. When I see something interesting I shoot. When people look at my pictures and say good things it makes me happy. That’s why I share the pics through my blog.

  13. Once you’ve identified risks, you need to determine the
    likelihood of that risk actualizing and describe what
    could happen should that event occur. For example, Microsoft, Johnson & Johnson,
    Coca Cola, Cisco and many other U. Bit – Defender Total Security 2011 provides the following
    features and options:.
