Yet more amazing photos, here we go for another week.

Post your "Artistic" shots, no need for realism! Things that have caught your eye, or things you have created.

Please post your "Artistic" shots - any camera, any time, even old film shots / scans.

Please reply to this first post and change the subject line at the top to reflect YOUR picture, so replies will indicate what picture is being commented on.

Please let people post photos for a day or so before posting comments so the photos get a good display for all to see.

Yet another antique wagon
In reply to carizi, Apr 19, 2014

Here is yet another antique railroad wagon, in my series of old "railroading" :-). This is in the railroad museum of the small city of Hyvinkää.  The wagon seems to be reasonably old !

best regards

UPSIDE DOWN REFLECTION + ABSTRACT
In reply to Erik Ohlson, Apr 19, 2014

Hi In the 1st picture I was underwater looking up toward the surface. The top 2/3 of the photo are underwater plants reflected off the bottom layer of the surface instead of the top layer of the surface like most photography. The 2nd picture is a Mangrove Abstract. Hope you enjoy them.Bruce

Wow Bruno, what sort of sick cult is this?

Grave of Jesus? On this very day, today, millions of Christians (myself included) are celebrating the resurrection of Jesus, the grave (tomb) has been empty for close to 2000 years!

Hold your fire Sergei.. don't kill the messenger, LOL.

Rare opportunity to take this picture occurred yesterday when the grave/tomb would be open to public - churchgoers were entering the catacomb  paying respects to Jesus and saying the prayers - couldn't notice any sick cult behavior. They were all God-fearing Christians.

Happy Easter to you and your loved ones,

Thank you Bruno, Christ is Risen! Blessings to you and your Family also.

My sister and her husband, I and my son and his wife spent Resurrection Sunday lunch with my 90 yr old Mother in her nursing home she had stroke 4 mnts ago,, other friends dropped in to pay respects, we had a blessed time.

Was not shooting at you just firing at falsehood, I was once bound in dead religion, but was saved from it!

Peace
