I like very much photos which have natural frames....made of stone or wood or plastic..or...I think it is a game of photographers....Great shot!

What a great idea to frame your own photo!

Sorry I haven't visited for ages but was busy with my english friend, but still I enjoyed going through your previous posts.

You're good at finding associations between the old and the (fairly) new. Views like this make a city come alive.

What a framing, indeed!!
And bluest scene ever.

We are going fast to a winter, many trees are already naked and warmth of nights is below 5 degrees Celsius, soon first frost is here.
But I can always enjoy sunny, warm pictures from you :)
Have a pleasant week !
