  •   marcia1313 @irapuanvalverde Você conseguiu ver o reflexo dos prédios no peito do pato? Eu não havia notado até meu marido me dizer, dias depois da foto ter sido tirada. Obrigada pelo apoio. Espero que sua viagem de volta tenha sido boa. Um abraço. 1w
  •   irapuanvalverde retôrno foi tudo bem, exceto por um probleminha (ão!) de dente. no ultimo dia. Mas velho é assim mesmo, as coisas começam a ruir sem aviso. Rsrsrs mas tá tudo bem e pronto pra outra (viagem bem entendido!!!). Grande abraço!! @marcia1313 1w
  •   marcia1313 @irapuanvalverde Problemas de dentes sempre têm terminação ão! Sei bem o que é isso. Recentemente , enquanto escovava os dentes, senti um pedacinho soltando...e este foi imediatamente acompanhado de mais dois não tão pequenos. Imagine o susto! Meu dente só focou com a 'fachada'. Graças a Deus meu dentista me viu no dia seguinte e restaurou o dente. Mas outra como essa eu espero nunca mais ter! Espero que sua próxima viagem tb seja ótima, e que vc não tenha que voltar ao dentista tão cedo. 1w
  •   felixdasilva_ How did you do that? Awesome! 6d
  •   marcia1313 @felixdasilva_ I didn't! I only saw that when I showed the photos of the day to Paul, and He pointed this out to me. I guess the drake had ducked in the water (pardon the pun!) and had just emerged went I took this. I was as surprised as you when Paul showed me. 6d

  •   a_snapshot_in_time Thanks for the info, Marcia... so interesting and what a gorgeous tree 1w
  •   _o2_ Très joli ! 1w
  •   marcia1313 @a_snapshot_in_time You're very welcome! And thank you for all your kindness, Melinda. 1w
  •   marcia1313 @_o2_ Merci! 1w
  •   a_snapshot_in_time My pleasure ;-) Happy Easter, my friend 1w
  •   felixdasilva_ Pirua tu esta arrasando! Estou passado com as suas imagens mais recentes! Beijos 6d
  •   marcia1313 @felixdasilva_ Aprendi com um dos melhores, meu filho! Um tal de Felix Dasilva me deu um crash course de fotografia, e eu venho observando fotos dele...aí vou aprendendo, né? A câmera tb ajuda nesse caso (PowerShot SX500 IS) mas o feeling veio em muita coisa das explicações que vc me deu. Tenho posto algumas fotos nas paredes aqui de casa. É ótimo vê-las nas molduras. Um beijo grande, querido. Mesmo não sendo sua religião, boa Páscoa. Acho que o Passover ainda está sendo comemorado, certo? Boas festas. Beijos. 6d

  •   marcia1313 @tedjerome You may well say that, but I...suffer from acrophobia! 3w
  •   tedjerome @marcia1313 Yeah, me, too! 3w
  •   marcia1313 You're kidding! @tedjerome So how on earth did you come up with the idea of using one of those? I guess men need to feel more courageous than women do. (Unless it's about apt kids, because then we're lionesses!) 3w
  •   tedjerome @marcia1313 Just because it scares me doesn't mean I can't appreciate what a great view it would be! When I was young and foolish, I used to try to overcome my fear of heights by climbing radio towers that swayed in the wind! Terrifying. 3w
  •   marcia1313 @tedjerome I swear that the idea would absolutely never cross my mind! I'm so scared that I can't even try to imagine myself up on a mountaintop, let a lone really try to climb something. And foolish wouldn't be the adjective I'd use here...nuts is much more appropriate. I bet your parents weren't amused (no matter how old you were). I can appreciate how great the view would be, if I where on the top of a hight building with really solid unmovable floor under my feet. No way am I imagine that from the top of anything movable! 3w
  •   tedjerome @marcia1313 Yeah, I gave that up decades ago! When I told my physics teacher in high school about the tower climb, he blanched and said a friend of his had done the same thing and had been unfortunate enough to have been there during a radio station's test of the signal, and the leaked microwaves *killed* him.... Needless to say, I stopped climbing towers. Mountains are fine for me (away from sheer cliff edges!) and skyscrapers with a solid-looking railing are ok; don't like anything that moves, though! 3w
  •   marcia1313 We agree completely there, then Ted! Solid ground is what God intended us to have under our feet. Not sure how microwaves could kill someone, unless it was from heating. But maybe it's better I do t dwell to much on that one... 3w
  •   tedjerome @marcia1313 Yes, we'll leave experimentation in the *virtual* realm! Yes, a big dose of microwaves will heat your cells to the burning point if you get in the way.  2w

marcia1313 @tedjerome just for you to have an idea. This is the gate itself, but the frame is absolutely stunning, and I couldn't get it all in one shot. It's actually the whole façade of the building. After you see it I'll delete the photo. I'm still hoping to get all of it in a shot. 1mon
  •   irapuanvalverde linda a porta !!! 1mon
  •   tedjerome Oh, that looks just lovely, Marcia! Thanks for posting it! 1mon

  •   ymelee Lovely 1mon
  •   tedjerome Great shot, Marcia! That's quite unusual--it is cast aluminum? 1mon
  •   marcia1313 Thanks Ted! I'm glad my photo confounded your brain and caused an optical illusion (although I think that was more due to the light ), but this gate is made of wood and probably a few centuries old. It's just the centre piece of the gate, because there was a car parked right bang in the middle of my view of it (@&£/!*%#!!!!!!!) It's the 'front door' if an institution that was created in the 1600's for older men to be cared for. The place was in use until the 1960's. the gate is probably higher than 2 meters and wider than 1m. It's really impressive and I'm still going to get it in one full shot, mark my words! But hey, I've only been trying for an year or two, and it's 2 minutes from my house... @tedjerome 1mon
  •   marcia1313 @ymelee Thank you very much! All there's to know about the gate's already up here if you are curious about it. 1mon
  •   irapuanvalverde 1mon
  •   tedjerome Well, that's cool! Thank for filling me in. 1mon

This one is for my friend @tedjerome so he can see the lamppost and the Zoo entrance as well. Enjoy it Ted.

marcia1313 I've just found out that this beautiful church, which happens to be protected as a historic monument by the Flemish government, is falling to pieces and has been boarded up for years now. The school which it belongs to wants to break it down to have more space for classrooms. As it's protected, the government has to lift this protection so the works can be done. Meanwhile, this building silently rots away... 1mon

  •   tedjerome Hey there, stranger! Welcome back!  2mon
  •   marcia1313 @tedjerome Hi Ted! Thanks. I seem to keep coming back and going away again, don't I? This time I was ill, but I'm OK now. We've had a very mild winter and incredible as it may seem, I wasn't the only one with health issues because of it. I always thought a mild whiter was healthier than a heavy one; but I was wrong. No we're getting straight into spring. Boy, am I glad about that! I hope you're well, Ted. I have to catch up with a lot of people now. Tons of photos to see. No complaints here. 2mon
  •   tedjerome @marcia1313 Oh, I'm sorry to hear that was the reason but I'm glad you are better. I've been fine (knock on wood) and hope to keep it that way into Spring! 2mon
  •   ecobf I am fine thanks Marcia. I hope the same to you. Keep in touch! 2mon
  •   marcia1313 @tedjerome Thanks again, Ted. I'm much better now, really. I've had an antiallergic shot some time ago and it's slowly working its magic. I hope you keep health too. 2mon
  •   marcia1313 @ecobf Thanks Cristina. I intend too! I have a lot of galleries to check, and yours is in my list, so you'll hear from me soon. 2mon
