Great composition.

Ha, nice picture.

I'd be happy if Jerusalem had even one such small beach.

That really is excellent. So much atmosphere. So much to see.


P.S. Now there's more storage space on Picassa, am back to blogging daily on my old site of Message in a Milk Bottle

That might be me in a foreign city. I'm always checking my map.

I do love your little, downtown beach! What a great shot, as always, JM! To answer your question on my post -- it is Chihuly! He's hard to miss, isn't he! Enjoy your evening!!

We tried map reading in Casablanca, it is very difficult there as most of the street signs have long disappeared!!
Love this photo. Diane

I am glad I am not the only one left with paper maps!

Jack said...

A paper map? I remember those, before iPhones.

Kay said...

As always, nice composition. It tells a wordless story. I like it!

Got a bit of the chills looking at this traveler's plight.

I'd love a little beach like that around here! Also, I'm laughing at the paper map, which suddenly seems so quaint:)

Como fiz isto, inúmeras e repetidas vezes :)

É a imagem do turista desbravador. E saber onde se está é o primeiro passo.

Could this be a tourist?

tapirgal said...

I used to try not to look like a tourist, but I do anyway, so I bring out the map anywhere - usually a big one.

Randy said...

I see this everyday on the plaza. Love that building!

Joan Elizabeth said...

This is great ... a sense of what the tourist is there to see.

Kris said...

oh gosh, I wish to be there..you're so lucky!

Gunn said...

Yes, I know the feeling.... Strange names and sometimes difficult to remember ......
