Nice shot; nice girl; nice accessorising with bead and nail polish colour...

Vogue, here we come! (Speaking of which, the damned boat has left the port, so no piccy.)

I would have called it blue moon but of course that has a different connotation. Was shooting abstracts and architecture when I spotted the moon.

Hoot-Hoot-Hoot - While I was shooting a rather mundane shot of a large fresnel lens used in a particular lighthouse I was shooting, I noticed that at the right angle, the lens looked much like a common barn owl.

More Barred Owl than Barn Owl - Barn Owls have more dished faces, and Barred Owls have horizontal banding in the throat area...  Grin  Still, nicely represented!!

My boo-boo. I have seen but a very few owls in the wild in my time and wouldn't know one from the other. City boy, I am afraid. Thanks for the identification should I get out of the city and find a real one instead of one in my over active imagination.

I first met this lady thirty-one years ago when she was the hottest thing in the little marina. Today that marina's long gone and a huge, concrete and vastly more chic replacement holds court over, and greatly beyond, the original site. Twenty-two grand (euros) to join, there's a waiting list. Also seems there's now question of a fifty-year lease only on berths, where some imagined they'd made an outright buy... watery castles in Spain, perhaps?

I dedicate this picture to you-know-who!

Is a good shot, however, even though the far left petal is "aimed" toward the left side of the frame, the bulk of the image is moving to the right and needs the "out" room more than the left side where you have it. I also find the lightness to the right a bit distracting.

Got to love tourists..I mean really, who wears black dress shoes with black socks while wearing shorts and being the obvious tourist type?

Chris, he's not British: Brits wear knee socks, and jesus sandals made from rubber tyres and old belts. Or, trainers with no socks at all, thus giving the trainers a life expectancy of one season. Epitome of cool.

But yes, they (tourists) do pay for their presence, in a way, by providing laughs for the locals. God help the locals when they go and become tourists elewhere. Next week IVA/VAT (value added tax) goes up to 21%. Brilliant idea: suffocate what little business there is that's just hangin' on, and drive the rest into the black economy. I really wonder if any tourists will be coming back next year, with or without fancy footwear. For the locals, I hope they do; for myself, I hope they don't. Split loyalties, then.

Whhhhhh...

Hi Chris. Nothing in the pic ( from where I reside) would suggest tourist to me. Here the chap and his subject would have to be wearing matching khaki long sleeved ( and don't forget the vented back) shirts and long trousers with mountain hiking boots with matching backpacks. Or as Rob mentioned, sandals with socks.

Only Americans would consider those "dress shoes." Wink

I would rather have my eyeballs poked out with a plastic spoon than pair those with a suit. Those appear to be a cross breed, walking sneakers (as opposed to running), in black, to fool the ignorati into believing they can serve the dual purpose (i.e., as, god forbid, dress shoes).

Slobodan,

I had the same thought as you. As an American, I DO NOT consider them to be dress shoes unless they are worn to complement a tuxedo T-shirt. Smiley
