Yes, weapons have certainly changed since then Boris, it will be fascinating to look down in 150 years time to see what will supersede our modern means of death and destruction,.... but there's no rush.
As for the 'cabbage eaters' they don't strike me as being the 'annexing' type, judging from their bloodshot noses, taking over the local pub would be more their style 'that's all I am saying.':)
Anyway, the cannon will outlive us all, more than can be said for the members of the 'Republic of Caterpillars' who will spend all their money
on cabbages and vodka if they do gain power through the barrel of that Russian cast-iron war trophy. :))
Your compliments are exceedingly welcome as ever, I'm pleased you like the 'spot and shot', great booming greetings heading your way, ~ D.
First I have to admit that I didn't realize that this were "vintage"photos. The brilliance of colors is really beautiful. So the Canon EOS-1DS was not a digital camera (If that's the case I wonder that the meta data is mentioned)? By the way: my daughter was very impressed that you remembered her Time Square affinity. Greetings Thomas
I remember Boris you mentioned the name "Schwinn" in New York and as you know I like these simple (naked?) vintage bikes very much. Many greetings from across the ocean! Thomas
Yes, David - happy days indeed... glad to share, as always - thanks for your company!
'Waves of greetings' to you - B.
Very much so, Thomas - classic American style,,, I like it the way it was ~ 100 years ago too...
I agree Thomas - saw it from some distance, and was drawn to it - there's something very 'summery' and comforting in it...
Thank you David - glad you're enjoying 'the city' impression of Long Beach as well as the ubiquitous pictures of waves, boardwalk, sunsets.. The warm glow is there to 'meet and greet' the wary commuters - the days are still long, and there's time to enjoy the summer pleasures of one's choice...
'Golden glow' greetings, - B.
You are right, Thomas - there is a feel of the scene being 'directed' ... The lighting though is all 'natural'... I love this kind of light (and shadows that come with it) too!
Thanks for coming all the way to check out this train station :)
Four, David? One moment... let me count... you, me and the third man... makes four for you??? ;))
Hello again szaza, I'm happy that you like this, thanks for your comment, regards, ~ D.
