Hi gio67;

Unfortunately, the photo is not viewable for me. Some technical difficulty perhaps ?

I think there's a permission issue. Maybe it's not permitted for 'public' viewing and you can see it because it's private ?
I tried 3 different browsers, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer and Chrome but they all show it as broken link.

Below is an attached look of what your post looks like.

I can see them both. I love the willingness of the photographer in the picture to sacrifice his slacks for the right shot. :)

Thank you for going to the trouble of giving me the link, Gio67.
I found out the reason why I wasn't able to see the photo in the source page: there's a prohibition by Justice of the Peace Court in Turkey and the page will not show. Only the Peace Court's decision is displayed. In short, my internet provider is Turkey-based and bound by the law enforcement order of the court.

I was able to view the photo on a proxy though and it's great. :D Love the colourful family against the pale blues of the sea and the sky...Made me wish I was on the Mediterranean coast at this moment. :)

Thank you for sharing,

Yildiz

So how do you like Goa Gio67? Too touristy? Just curious.
Nice shot by the way.

a decent mix of tourists and indian living their normal lives, more touristy than Kerela but Kerela was a bit quiet for me and it is now a dry state,although it was dry when I was there it was kidology,you got the beer wrapped in newspaper, but now it is completely dry except for a couple of 5 star hotels

I did not realize Kerala is a dry state. I was there last year in February and had no problems ordering
beer though I was not staying at any fancy places and I would look local till I open my mouth. Someone
did the newspaper wrapping for me then. :lol:
Like the fact that the newspaper was hardly a "cover". Very whimsical shot, IMHO.

Thank you. I was blissfully oblivious when we got the beer on a house boat.
Shudder to think that we were breaking the rules unless a house boat is treated
as a 5 STAR hotel. At least the service and the standards on the boat were 5 star. :D

The water was gently rolling and provided an interesting effect on the reflection of the trees beyond.
