The piano-tuner did a good job, Antje, and it sounds great now... Trio for piano, cloud and airplane :)
Tough and fierce on the outside for sure, but you know people better than that Antje:)
the shot is so good - it hurts! )
That's a lot of smoke and gunpowder smell - well captured cloud, David!
That's an interesting 19th century doohickey tool he's got on his hip :)
Smiles and high-fives, - B.
What a fascinating, funny, and educational story, David!
Hope it didn't come to the sad finale - evidently the monkey is as alive in your fine picture, as the other participants :)
Glad, time have changed to the better for all involved...
As always your stories are 'more fun than a barrel of monkeys' - keep them coming!
Very best of them light-hearted greetings - B.
The summer feast is almost over - not much left on the table in terms of colors and sweetness...
This yarrow (also known as gordaldo, nosebleed plant, old man's pepper, devil's nettle, sanguinary, milfoil, soldier's woundwort, thousand-leaf, and thousand-sea) is 'nothing to sneeze at', and maybe is just what's needed to get ready for tougher times :)
It came out very gentle and sunny, Antje - nice tribute to the hard-working bee and this warm and caressing 'Light of summer'!
**Marlene & JLuis. Thank you both for your comments. I am very pleased that you liked the angled shot of this huge 'spider's web' of ropes.
Greetings in return. ~ :D
Thanks Amelia, glad you like it the same way i did! Greets, Ed
Thank you very much, Roger, for the nice and kind comment. Glad you like this picture.
Hi Boris! After some time the rain stopped and i went outside to take a few pics. ( the pic named "mirror" on the right). I could not get out of my house without getting my feet wet. You are right about the preparation, our sewage systeem can deal with those situations uptil now. The "flood" was gone in about ten minutes.
I agree with both you and David, the atmosphere and when the rain stops, the whole surrounding is refreshed and the smell is one of new life.
Most of the time the wind is completely gone. ( not for long in Holland)
Thanks for your refreshing comments, Boris and David! You've brightened this morning!
