Wie sähe eine Welt ohne Werbung aus?

I really like the progression of rectangles, with the gate slightly askew. Symmetrical but asymmetrical.

I love a fascinating picture of an empty space.

OK, I love this picture. The setting is foreign, but the feeling is so familiar—people at home, comfortable, enjoying each other's company. And apart from that, it's just a lovely photo.

Carl, sometimes the situation just asks for a picture - like that short break at a gas station, when the sun was finally fully up but the shadows still quite long.

Danke, Uwe. Dort "auf dem Land" ist das Leben so völlig anders als in den Städten, so viel unmittelbarer - das hat großen Eindruck auf mich gemacht.

Sehr gelungenes Bild. Anrührend und be-deutsam zugleich: die präzise Handreichung im Dienste eines gemeinsamen Zieles. Gruß Uwe

Simple, straightforward, and perfect. The light totally makes it.

Oh yes, someone has to pay for the healing.

Carl, I've seen so little from that country up to now, and this confrontation with just a tiny part of rural Africa was truly unsettling. Having long lost any romantic notions about life in the countryside, the hardness of life out here was beyond my imagination. Zimbabwe has very low median age, 20.6 years, and an incredibly high HIV rate of 13%. But at least the analphabet rate is with ~10% one of the lowest of Africa. This school cluster certainly added its share to this more positive perspective.

Yes, the reflections do their magic here. But in all my photographic life this was the first time that I saw non-color and color coming together in such a perfect way.

So weit draussen auf dem Land, wo nichtmal mehr eine Teerstraße hinführt, ist diese Werbung eigentlich Realsatire. Aber der kindliche Wunsch, ohne Arbeit reich werden zu können, ist wohl überall zu Hause.

Well, you will get deliverance, Juha (given that you are a believer, and most probably you have to be a donor, too) ;)

I'm rather afraid to ask what is prophetic healing. Rather fine composition in the photograph.

That cluster of schools is a pretty good hike from the sign.

All the reflections bring this photo to life. The red coveralls become a focus, but then we have already discussed the magic of the color red.

Markus Spring said at 2017-08-03 13:14:12:
Thanks, Carl. I was astonished how much natural grey can happen around noon.

Carl Weese said at 2017-08-02 17:32:34:
Great catch, the red pants pull everything together.

Thanks, Carl. I am slowly finding back my old abilities of seeing unspectacular things, having spent to much time pouring over (useless) preparations for the spectacular things I am expecting on my upcoming Zimbabwe-roundtrip.

Carl Weese said at 2017-08-01 16:23:59:
Actually took a second to get it...nice.

In Harare bestimmt! Du wirst lachen - ich habe eine Daunenjacke dabei... Aber die Rundreise beginnt mit 22h auf einer Fähre auf dem Kariba-See, und da hats tagsüber schon wieder Badetemperaturen.

Lach - ja. Aber sie fallen einem (resp. den Fingern) dann wieder ein. Genießt es! Ist bestimmt sehr interessant, wenn auch offensichtlich etwas kühl ;-)

Markus Spring said at 2017-07-27 16:58:55:
Oh ja - ich hab' gerade festgestellt, dass es das erste mal seit über 30 Jahren ist, dass ich mal wieder 4 Wochen am Stück im Ausland bin. Wenn ich zurückkomme, werde ich wahrscheinlich die Hälfte der Passwörter vergessen haben ...
