    Wow … LOVELY! Your images are growing and changing so much!!! Great detail and light…it’s so clean there! lol Fantastic capture of a moment. (did you read the book?or does the title have nothing to do with that?)

  • Thank you Tania.I appreciate your continuous comments and support. I got lucky, I think the street cleaners had just been through and I was there early before the tourists all came back out.
    I read the book and saw the movie….the street sort of reminded me of some of the street scenes in Prague.
