A while ago in Warsaw...

Triggers the memory of the old insurance company commercial, "W-a-u-s-a-u, Waursaur!"  ;D

I like this shot.  The B&W tones come across well on the computer screen.

Thanks Keith. This was shot more than 10 years ago :) I wonder how the place looks today. I remember I noticed the man in the last moment before he walked away from the missing letter A so I did not have enough time to zoom. That was why the picture is heavily cropped. He made a second round around the stadium, but eventually stopped before the billboard and sat down on the grass :)

Appreciate you commenting. This was my last photo from a walk along the Eastside Esplanade, by the Willamette River, this weekend. The graffiti and the One-Way sign caught my attention, but I had a hard time framing an image. Glad you like it. Thanks...

Never been to Australia. Near a small town in the North part of Greece.

Nice one. Chaotic for sure and doesn't make it less "what not" when one cannot read Japanese  ;D
