Glad you are enjoying my blog. I am not familiar with a Bronica but will check out your work. Appreciate your visit- you live in a wonderful part of the world. 😄 Reply ↓ Otto von Münchow July 12, 2016 • 6:01 pm Fantastic street images. Looks like you had a great Scandinavian tour. Sorry for the rain in Bergen…. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 12, 2016 • 6:05 pm Thanks, Otto. We sure did… the rain was a bit of a welcome relief. We hit some unusually hot weather while we were there especially earlier in Stockholm and Denmark. Reply ↓ pattimoed July 12, 2016 • 4:06 am Great street photography, Jane! I love your interpretation of this week’s challenge. Frankly, I’m surprised more people don’t have accidents while crossing the street and looking at their phones! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 12, 2016 • 8:57 am Hi Patti, I really enjoy everyday moments on the street so this was a fun theme. I agree, it’s amazing that there aren’t more accidents — also, more surprised faces of people realizing what they are missing in the world around them. 😉Thanks! Reply ↓ sandramytravelness July 11, 2016 • 3:23 pm Stunning post, Jane! I felt I was there with you. 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 11, 2016 • 3:38 pm That’s so nice, Sandra. Spying along with me 😉 Thank you. Reply ↓ sueruvo July 11, 2016 • 7:40 am These are great! Sent from my iPad > Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 11, 2016 • 8:46 am Hi Sue, Thanks so much! Glad you like these.

Reply ↓ Linda Wyatt July 10, 2016 • 2:07 pm Such a timely post as I have only seen the tops of my grandchildren’s heads this week as they are glued to their Ipads or whatever! Walk and text…. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 11, 2016 • 8:44 am Hi Linda, I think we all can relate to that no matter the age! I hope you are having a fabulous time. Happy you enjoyed this series– thanks so much. Reply ↓ kathleen July 10, 2016 • 2:06 pm Love love the umbrella shot and the humor in the other photos. k Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 11, 2016 • 8:41 am Hi Kathleen, Ha- you get me. 🙂 Happy I brought a smile to your face. The umbrella scene cracked me up. Thanks! Reply ↓ David July 10, 2016 • 11:05 am You must’ve caught them on a “blah” day. 🙂 If you’re looking for a good venue to people watch, it’s at a horse show – preferably hunter/jumper. Most shows are free admission, from the little kid events to the grand prix. Just bring your own food and drink, vendors are too expensive. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 11, 2016 • 8:40 am Hi David– Glad you like this series– thank you. And for the tip on horse shows. Your horse (and daughter) portraits are wonderful! Reply ↓ David July 11, 2016 • 1:50 pm Thank you.

I really like the What Scuplture photo – brilliant reflections…and the kids sort of look bored 😀 Your 100th selfie? Did you capture that yourself? 😀 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 10, 2016 • 5:39 pm Hi Mabel, Haha! I was amazed at how many selfies this woman was taking on this ferry trip.
