Hi Evy
Thank you. Besides the colors I also like the little funny touch of the chimneys apparently "sipping" from the straw.
Happy that you like it.

In order to show the context of the picture, I have uploaded another picture. This picture shows that it's "really real"! (Mette). So he advertizing-guys or -girls have done a good job too. I have a few other interpretations of the motiv, but I think this will do!


Susana Matos September 11, 2003

yes, nice detail, you have caught here, congrats, Su #196184

Jean Papo September 11, 2003

What an interesting shot! Congratulations on your win with it! #196254

Dan S. Coquia September 12, 2003

Clever and fun! Congrats! #197775

Alan V. Hansen September 15, 2003

Hello Susana, Jean and Dan
Lots of thanks - im overwhelmed by te nice words about my picture. I hope that the extra shot that I uploaded has helped the interpretation on its way (If needed). Anyway it shows - as Susana mentions - that it in this case is a question of dragging out a detail to make exactly that part of a big city have "it's own life". And that is what I often try to do with my camera. But not the only thing!
