A deep, beautiful and unusual colour for the Sydney Opera House. Also I'm glad to see your night pictures again, dear Yan!

Best wishes. Eva

Beauty. My feeling is that the humans in the shot add so much interest to the image that it would be a little boring without them. :) Ever wonder what other photograhers, like the duo in the middle of the frame using a tripod, are capturing. Nice work.

All the best, Tom

Dear Tom and Eva,

It is quite interesting to see the various photographers in this image. One videoing, one reviewing, another holding her didital at arm's length, the duo with their tripod, ... And then I like the couple in a loving embrace in the distance. The pink adds to the special atmosphere, and brings out the romance in photographers and lovers alike.

I really hadn't intended to upload this image but am now glad I did because of all the activity that you have pointed out, Tom. Thanks. And sorry that I am still in work overload, so I'm not getting time to catchup with uploads of friends except in a cursory way. But I will and then I can resume good immediate conversations and encouragement of others.

I had to take a busload of exiting students to the airport last night, and there were some new arrivals as well, so after the airport I detoured via the city so they could walk over the Harbour Bridge wu=ith their cameras. But that gave me a 25 minute window of opportunity to create a few more night images in Sydney's Hyde Park that will be uploaded in the near future, and I know you will enjoy them too, Eva.

Kind regards to you both,
