A great shot of this line of people. They looks so small compared to the structures.

Shrinking life to its real, its important size.

A photo that cries to be enlarged, explored, and enjoyed!

Some of your photos interest me because they are of a place I am unlikely ever to visit in real life, some because they are worth looking at in themselves. This is in the later group. Whether one knows where it is or what's happening - or not - it's impressive. I could live with this.

Interesting composition! I like very much the detail up on the wall.

nice capture of the bird (gull?) who appears to be headed into the brick wall! interesting to see how buildings and walls were built and rebuilt/repaired over time.

Excellent image VP, I like the way they are all walking 'single file' along the wall!
