A resuscitated oldie.
oh and who is a good tour service for chernobyl??
yes indeed my kind of place, would have to shoot digital, but the shots one could get would be outstanding, of course I could just come visit you in moscow, since I know you could protect me from the russian mob, lol..
but seriously, I would love to shoot abandonments in russia in general!! or in this case the ukraine? not sure where chernobyl is but I am sure I can find it...
man don't tempt me I have been dying to check out mother russia!!! with a passion, it is a place that has really captured my fascination!!!

Very nice, L77. Again, I very much like the old/new contrast here.
Many thanks for your positive comments. A lot of people seem to live in a world where the old intersects with the new. In some ways, people are pulled into two different polarities... This phenomenon seems quite rampant in Asian cities. Once again, thanks so much for your continued encouragement. Best wishes, Leica 77
A continuation of the graphic theme. It starts with a photo but then becomes something else. Kind of fun. This is a shadow of a star leaning in the window.
I really like these graphic themes Tim, simple and effective!
Leica 77, I thought that I used to get around a lot but now I see that you're the king of the gypsies! Would be nice to put a name to the moniker by now...
Many thanks for your kind comments. I agree that the baby was not so sure about my digital SLR + AF Nikkor zoom lens or myself! It's possible that the baby might have been hungry. I was getting hungry at that moment and was able to obtain something to eat from a Spanish food stand. There is still a lot of Spanish and Mexican cultural influence in the Philippines. During the Spanish Era, the Manila galleons connected Manila with Acapulco through the trans-Pacific trade. That ocean trade route was pioneered by Magellan in the 16th century.

L77, your photos from this part of the world fascinates me, and it's interesting to see how different the world looks depending on who's the interpreter. It's a pity that Mitch isn't active on these forum any longer, since he represented the opposite end of the interpretation.
