Now THIS looks like fun! :) How beautiful! It is just lovely.

There is no one there but you?

I believe I would be very happy in here.

Greetings,

Mary Alice

It IS a truly beautiful conservatory. It was also a very peaceful visit, because there were few others there at the time - it wasn't difficult to wait for the view to clear. Thank you for visiting me in Minnesota, Mary Alice ;) -alicia

Nice Alicia. I had to zoom in on the map to get a look at that building. You have this tagged Scan. Are these from slides, negatives, or prints? Larry

Larry, I had to go back and rummage to see if this was a negative or slide, and this is from a negative. I scanned a bunch of images awhile ago and put them all in the same folder on the computer without regard to slide or negative (haven't scanned any prints yet). My negatives are in worse shape though, and I can see the dust and scratches in this one. This conservatory dates from the early 1900's, and is also referred to as the Como Park Conservatory. This particular shot is of one of the sunken gardens. It is well worth seeing if you are ever in St. Paul. Thank you for visiting and your comments, Larry. (I have yet to finish viewing your newest Kauai uploads, and I will swing by!) Best, alicia

Alicia, I have scanned a great number of slides and some negatives for this site. I am almost always shocked to see all the scratches and dust on them (even with the protection I have given them). Thank goodness for digital technology.

I will have to make a point of stopping at this Conservatory if I ever get to that area. There is a small one at Wright Park in Tacoma that I have visited, but it is nothing like this one.

Greetings again, Nicolas and thank you for stopping by. You are too kind about my poor French ;) and since your English is so good, I write you in same :D. Thank you also for your compliments - I'm glad you are enjoying my photos. Best from USA, alicia

Wonderful photo, Alicia! It's a beautiful open space with intricate patterns of light everywhere. I think this one definitely should have been in GE, especially since this one and this one already are.

Cheers, Ryan

Hello, Ryan and thank you for your very kind support! It is very observant of you to notice the selection. While I hesitate to put reason to panoramio's rhyme, I tend to think that they are tightening up their selections - it seems they use to select quite randomly without adhering to their own criteria. And while I say that, I can't explain certain recent selections (of my own as well as others) that don't comply with their criteria. Go figure....I can't ;)

I am content, though, with the satisfaction I get from the conversations and sharing of photos on panoramio - world wide - that we couldn't get so easily otherwise. Thank you again for your kind words. Warm regards, -alicia
