Glad You like it! You are welcome! :)

This morning I captured also few Liberty style houses. I will look later at night, might be I will upload few for Your critics.

(I know, I need wide angle lenses to capture in narrow streets, or need walk with tripod for capture in series, to stick with Panoramio software) :(

Cheers - ainars.

Hi Ainars,thanks but really it's not necessary to hurry.And if you tell me about technique I don't understand.My camera is a pocket I have only about from end June and I only have a tripod I bought later when I got that I needed it to take photo in the night but used very few times.Anyway thanks for the thought .

Cheers Daniela

Hi Daniela, thanks for Your recent visit and for Your kind understanding! I am bit overloaded for last weeks! Before I expected manage Your asked photos in last two weekends, but see, no way so far. :(

Meanwhile, glad to see, You find (LS- Liberty Style) samples I captured in last week!

This houses are not very popular for tourists as those from whole long streets You seen in Your visit there!

Since I have now my Sony H7 I capturing a lot photos whenever I go. Then I spreading and sorting them over street named folders in my home PC. So far I uploaded photos only from streets beginning with letters A (Antonijas- with Liberty style, Avotu) and B (Brivibas, Balasta, Blaumana).

LS style houses are spread over whole city centre and I already have in my folders saved more single selections than I have uploaded so far. My personal favorites are not only LS style, but also old wood houses, or houses with interesting front side elements.

I planning more uploads in next days and will give special note to You when LS houses again will be uploaded. :)

With k. regards - ainars.

Hi Daniela, there I go again with serie from street, where mostly LS style houses are in both sides.

This is my third try. My previous problems in this street was too high sun contrast or distorted perspective problems.

For this weekend session I specially choosed rainy day, with low lighting contrasts. Hope than houses will help You recall Your visit in Riga in Alberta street (Bishop Albert street). :)

Sorry, I tried unite this serie under special tag, specially for You, but seems I have tagging problems? Might be because all over the world users now uploading and tagging new photos after such long delay?
