Today I went out after a very long time. My dog (Kira) was in the car of my son. I saw his happy expression and a unique play of light and shadow. Here is the photo that shows me even while I do the photo.

Headquarters of the Longaberger Corporation. This particular crop of the image is mostly due to the fact that it was taken through a car window, and I didn't want to show the car door frame.
I can not remember the name of this tower

The picturesque St. George Kryonerites is situated in the eastern part of Serres. The name “Kryonerites”derives from the cold water springs that used to be close to this area. It was founded before 1298 and became a dependency of St. John Prodromos Monastery in 1334, when Ypomoni, the wife of the sovereign of Serres, Sakellarios Mourmouras, donated it to the St. John Prodromos Monastery. The church was severely damaged by the Turks in 1572, when the elegant dome collapsed and was replaced later by an hemispherical roof that was internally covered with a quadrilingual pyramidal roof. Probably the roof was made during the repairs in 1864 that are referred to on the engraved stone inscription to the western outer side of the monument.

Ok, we have a new theme, I thank the moderators for the new inspiration! This is my first "swallow" If we did not have bridges that would be interesting, just as there are many people who have never been farther than a mile from their homes. I think that a bridges connecting people! What do you think?

Originally a Gothic prismatic campanile with a pyramidal roof dating back to the turn of the 14th and 15th centuries. A marble tablet above the entrance to the bell tower reminds us of the modification the tower was subjected to in 1628, when a pyramidal roof was constructed. The bell, which was installed in the tower (its weight equals to 7 tones), was dedicated to St. Urban, the patron of wine-prowers, which was cast in a mould by the bell founder Frantisek Illenfeld of Olomouc in 1557. In 1775 the tower underwent further reconstruction, when a pyramidal roof was constructed with annion in the Baroque style with an iron cross preserved to this day. In the early 19th century the tower was completed with an Empire roof and small shops were built around it. In the years 1911-1912, 1943-1944 and in 1947 an arcade was constructed around the Tower. 36 tombstones dating from the 14th century (one of these tombstones is Roman dating from the 4th century) to the 17th century were put into the outerwalls of the Tower. In 1966 the Tower was damaged by fire, which destroyed the roofing and the bells. In the years 1967-1971 the Tower was subjected to restoration and renovation. The East Slovakian Museum set up an impressive exhibition of ironwork. Regrettably, this was removed in 1995.

The railway bridges down by the River Mississippi in St. Louis provide a wealth of interesting material for photography.
Here the evening sun is reflected off this support tower while the deck of the railway tracks provides a deep dark contrast with the blue sky.
Taken with a deep depth of field (f/11) and spot metered on the reflected sunlight to prevent highlight blowout.
Thank you all for so many great photos. It was really hard to choose and a true pleasure
