Actually, that theme wasn't on purpose. You mention it, I hadn't thought about it.

Thanks!

There is no dificulty in spotting the theme of the cards I sent!

All the post boxes are close to home - Eddington (for Art) is a small village pretty much attached to the small town of Hungerford in West Berkshire.

to Brian: Facade of an office building



to Roger: Details of the facade of the Berlin Chamber of Commerce



to Steve: Pavilion in the botanical garden of Sanssouci park

A happy & healthy new year to everyone!

Thanks for posting your shots, @waldo_posth ... a beautiful set of urban landscape/architectural images. Did you have this theme in mind or did it happen organically?

I need to post my originals soon, but I have been under the weather a little bit for the past few days but recovering nicely. I'll try to get to it this weekend.

Happy New Year, all!! And to all of the DPE 2023 participants, thanks for playing!! We'll spin something up again in about 8-9 months

Well, all images have been taken in my (larger) neighborhood (that would include Berlin). But I like the idea of organic photography!

Well, we have just defined a new genre of photography, a sub-genre of street photography -- organic photography! -- semi-random observations from around our cities, towns and villages. First uttered here at Dyxum. Over the years, I have discovered that you can find beauty if you just look around.

Nice work with your shots, waldo!
