A great night shot! Well done! Regards, Christian

Thanks so much, Christian, for your visits and comments. When we reached our hotel in the evening, the porter told us that the roof-top breakfast room, which also serves snacks and drinks, was open, Though we were tired, we went up to the 6th floor patio, and this is what we saw! Needless to say, all fatigue was forgotten.

Greetings, Marilyn

Hi Marilyn. I just happened to be at my computer when the e-mail announcing your new shots came in. Recognizing you as an old friend, I smilingly opened Panoramio to your page. This shot is among the most dramatic and interesting of your newest selections. Believe it or not, I've saved all the e-mails for the year+ that I've been away (starting a new company), and still hope to reactivate my participation. In any case, congratulations on this new selection, and happy Holidays. Best personal regards, Hank

I'm so glad to hear from you, Hank. I've been posting picture from time to time myself, mainly in connection with travel. But I, too, have a massive collection of e-mails, intending to become more active again on Panoramio. Hope springs eternal! Very best wishes to you, Marilyn

Wonderful night shot.. How lucky that you had such a good porter. L

Thanks, Keith, for your lovely comment. Since it's a bit harder for me to get around now, I'm not likely just to go out just to take pictures as I once did. But this trip was one huge "photo op," and I'm glad you think I haven't lost the knack.

Yes, Eva, lucky that the porter suggested it and lucky that we found the energy to go. I'm glad you like this.

Cheers, Marilyn

Excellent capture Marilyn, LIKE it very much! I was in Istanbul just 10 days earlier:) Greetings from Vilnius, Jurgis

Thank you, Jurgis, for your visit and LIKE. Istanbul is certainly a fascinating place. I'm just sorry it's so far away from Canada! Greetings, Marilyn
