Hi Richard: I went to Curacao a couple of time in the 70’s and wish that I could go back again.
Do they still have the little boat that takes people back and forth? What is the name of the bridge they built, for the people but they liked to take the boat instead? Was it “The Peoples Bridge? How many square nickels did you bring home? Wonderful memories.
Your image from across the river is beautiful, I love it.
Also, can you tell me a little about “Lucis Pro 6.0?
My best, Merna

The Willemstad skyline is beautiful, especially in the evening. I used Lucis Pro 6.0 to enhance the colors and details of the buildings and reflections.
