Folio....

Hamburg
This is going to be a photo blog as I am pressed for time to write a blog…My parents are here after going through a big struggle in getting the visa. We were in Paris 2 weeks ago and just back from Rome…Although I have been to both places before, it felt good to be there again as a guide this time...More stories and adventures in later posts…

ç'est bien, my friend!

Fabulous pics..not just telling for the sake of commenting. Why dont you work on a new blog just 4 pics, apart from 'spark' & 'ámbrosia'?

Not kidding man..Some of your angles and frames are really nice. I've a friend here who developed a passion for photography, and he gave me a few tips when i bought my digicam..but I found out that I wont be shining too much in that field.:))

Buddy, next time just cross over to the Swiss part of the continent..Its spellbinding.As the caption of your blog says, ít will take your breath away'. And welcome to Ireland as well..:)))

Hope you had a great time with ur folks..There is nothing more I enjoy in this world than travelling. Only if I used my imagination while clicking the button.:(

Enjoy!

Awesome angles! And, how did you manage the widescreen shots? Got a wide angle lens for your DSC-H2 or stitched images together? Must be the lens, no? :D

Awesome pics. Envy you for the DSC-H2. :P
