Wonderful capture. Greetings from Athens.
Taksim Square is beautiful and this photo is also. It looks very much like nice tile was used across the entire square. And you can sure see the European design in the buildings. It appears the only power line above ground is for the electric trains, which ensures a very clean style.
Now today I see on the news how a protest to save a nearby park has gotten out of control. I will stand with those who wish to keep the park as it provides "refuge" from all the steel and concret in this area of the city. It's important to have these parks and "greenways" and we see that in all major cities. It's a place to get away from it all, a place to relax and enjoy nature and the way the area was once like.
Yep, save those trees and save that park. Give the people that small area of the city where they can still look up through the trees at the blue sky and dream of how good things can be.
Beautiful shot! Like! Greetings from Estonia, Anna
I was stationed at Fort Leonard Wood for basic training in 1973. Looks like things have changed quite a bit since then. There is however one thing that remains the same, lots of red brick.
Thank you fishinoregon for your visit and comment. You are right. Panama Canal is much more than engineering... Greetings from Colombia, Luis

I'm a wildlife biologist. I work in nature and don't care much for big cities or big buildings, but these photos are great.
Today I look on Google Earth at an area under great distress. People are being killed by their own government. I wish the very best for the people of this region and hope aid will come fast.
Thank you for these great photos. It gives all of us a better understnding of the area, it's people, and it's beauty.
