^^  Very nice Keith

Antwerp water towers

And back at you Pieter!

Thanks Eric & JNB_Rare, appreciated.

Have to admit I didn't notice the Coke bottle until after the event.

Now we know where Ms. Coke has been traveling recently.

After 20 years or so I visited a funfair ...

One for Rob.

Leica M240, 35mm Summilux ASPH @ f/4ish.




All those thousands of miles away and you still thought of me! ;-)

I still keep an eye open for the old Coke bottles, the ones with the raised glass motif, but never see them anymore. All you get are cheap, printed logos.

Should I come across one of the oldies but goodies, it might make me start back into the theme - possibly around the "ancestor to Ms. Coke" angle. The light reflections would be so much more interesting, and would give my dormant 2.8/105 Micro Nikkor some exercise.

I'd like to see what you'd make of Cuba.

Being India the bottle is likely to be counterfeit and the contents risky! On the other hand I believe there are many genuine vintage Coke bottles available on eBay.

Cuba; once on my bucket list but no more. Too many pesky photographers and white faces. Thankfully in India it is perfectly possible to walk for hours without encountering any of either.

Not in my experience. I wonder what makes you say so? By the way, two thirds of Cubans are white.

Yes, I looked quite a few years ago; but there's no way of knowing if they are in pristine condition (how I like my female bottles, at least) and as they are mainly in America, no point in further disappointment...

I'm currently watching the Braquo series, and wondered, as you too enjoy French dramas, if you had any idea why the title, as none of the characters seems to bear the name? Perhaps it's a colloquial, Parisian form for CID?

Rob, never even heard of the series, but thanks for the heads-up, I'll look into it.

Currently watching the box set of Sopranos - bought used on eBay, over 80 episodes for £15. Only trouble is 'T' puts me in mind of my Brother-in-Law, also named Anth-O-Knee.

I answered my own question by consulting the good doctor Google:

"The name of the series comes from the French word braquage, meaning armed robberies, particularly of banks."

I loved the Sopranos!

If ever I get back to Glasgow I shall have my son drive me through some of the city's less happy areas as I snap away in homage (read rip off) to The Sopranos' opening titles. Whether they work in stills is another matter, but hey, a break from shop windows!

Lots of fun! I love the colours. I prefer the slightly "sharper" ones that show the rich blue in the sky.

Nice. Then again, I've been to 35 countries, would be a shame to cross them all from your bucket list ;)

We had one of those here today, too. At least it started that way. But, after a short drive to the seaside, the temperature dropped dramatically, the wind came up and clouds rolled in. Then it started to pelt cold rain. Had to retire to a local café to warm up.

Two spring-y days in a row, a relief after the near-horrors of last weekend. From earlier this afternoon.

Took me awhile to see it in the first place.  :)  I was looking way too close to the horizon.
