I couldn't help but read you thread to Fiona about the puzzles to which i may add that my grandfather ( father's side ) was also an immensely passionate of jigsaw puzzles as your dad was , it was a passion he had found ( to pass away the time and alleviate the sorrow )in the early weeks following his wife's passing away . He was exceptionally good at it , i would marvel at his doing the most difficult ones in good time for a 70+ year old man , it was no surprise that he was actually working on one when he had to be taken to the hospital where he later died , he was 78 .
Your father was keeping his brain active and what a great game to achieve that purpose , they had that one passion in common .
Great photo , nice crop Trudy and a good photographic eye to see the shot ,
take care amiga ,

What interesting and perhaps not so interesting stories have been told withing this café's walls , the minute one opens that door and closes it back on oneaelf there is another story to be told . Here the door is closed , tempted to push it open well i sure am ! I like the sepia-tinged finish of your image , your trademark as we all know , your treatment sure gives that old feel ambience to it . My compliments Teresa ,
Greetings ,

Ola Teresa ,how are you ? I have not been consistent here in the last 2 months sorry for not reviewing your images more often , when you do post it is always a pleasure to admire . You have a good photographic eye to see the scenes , adding your personal touch with the little star-dotted background in this image has given life to the toys and i also like the bright yellow on opposite sides to gayly enlighten the scene and balancing your composition .It is lovely !
I am taking the opportunity to wish you and your family my best for 2013 , take care my dear ,
Um abraço ,
Carol

Well well look who's here , nice to see you posting Chris , i am not here that much but i poke in from time to time to see how things are shaping up , anyway one from China and as Jean wrote , it would be hard to tell where this interesting image has been taken, the subtle bluish-tinged sky makes the light-coloured buildings stand quite nicely against it and the finely saturated greens are visually pleasing , not a bad shot i reckon , thanks for sharing my friend ,

Another fine submission to the themes , that one i wish i had participated in , good technique on this one , it feels like some speed/motion effect has been applied here with a filter , obviously not the case , you have held long enough to record correctly the mouse and get that motion effect shifting the camera away from it for an outstanding result, well delivered imagery Peter,

Beautiful group portrait Anandselvi , it pops out of the gallery , so many expressive faces to eye over ,even the BG seems to compete visually which in my opinion might have been made diffused somehwhat a bit more but it's only me visualizing the group of young folks perfectly separated from the BG nevertheless the type of portrait i would feel content to have taken!
Good job and thanks for sharing ,

Lol !I certainly like the idea behind the shot Peter and how you have done it too , even showing velocity on the about to strike the duck's head golf ball , it is funny and at this time of a cold season that is going to last another 4 months this is the type of photography that helps me put my mind in relaxation mode , keep them coming ,
All my best ,
Carol

It's all in the title Fiona it tells the little story very well and likely none would come close to that thing , it puts a smile on my face just visualizing the scene you had before your eyes , hey hey , love the showy t-shirts , well done and thanks for sharing the moment ,
