Yes Rdfan, these countries are beautiful. I would like to go back and spend a few days there. I will post more pics from Austria.

I used to live in San Francisco in early 1980s. Nice city. Saw many beautiful sights. Here is a photo of San Francisco(Bay area) from Lombard street, the crookedest street.

I am too tempted to look for a job which gives me ample opportunity to travel. This way I can combine work with pleasure.

Thanks Ashish and Rishi. You guys are young and plenty of time to see the world.

I shot this photo while I was in Scotland. I took the description from the net.

In 1269, while the Earl of Atholl was away in England for an extended period, a neighbour, John Comyn, started to build a castle on the Earl's land. Atholl complained to King Alexander III, got his land back, and incorporated the usurping tower into his own castle. It is still there, called Comyn's Tower.

It has been occupied by attackers on four occasions, including being taken by the Cromwellians during the English Civil War.
During the 1745 Jacobite revolt, Bonnie Prince Charlie stayed at Blair Castle on his way south after landing at Glenfinnan. Inevitably the English army occupied the castle in 1746 as the Jacobite revolt came to its sad conclusion. The Jacobites under Lord George Murray, lay siege to Blair in what is believed to be the last castle siege in Britain.

Blair has changed its architectural appearance over the years. Much of what can be seen today dates from the 18th century, and it has become a palace rather than a fortress.

I agree...........By the way, I think Didi has covered almost the whole of the northern hemisphere, except the North Pole.

Thanks Ashish and Rishi for your appreciation. I have seen very little. Hopefully, I cansee 50% of the world.

Today, I decided to go to New York City. I enjoy going bymyself, so that I can spend many hours seeing anything I like. Istarted at 12 noon at the southern tip of Manhattan in battery park and walked all the way to Prince Street in Soho andthen caughtthe subway to Penn Station. It took me 4 hours to see everything between South Ferry stationand Prince street. I took 200 photos. I will upload many of them periodically.

Here is theone pic of me with raging bull. This bull is 7000 pounds and made out ofbronze. The sculptor is New York City artist, Arturo Di Modica.He created this one after the black Monday in Oct,1987. It is situated in Broadway and Bowling Greene intersection.

Nice thread , Lakshmi !!

Unfortunately I was only able to see the first pic in the full size. When i clicked on the next one i got the message "Sorry, you have downloaded your allotted amount of files for today."

Didn't know the limit applied to seeing images too (!!)...but i suppose it's logical.

The accompanying descriptions make the thread even more interesting. Keep it up...and have fun travelling and taking photos too !!

Thanks Sri for your appreciation. Can't attach the images as they are. Hereis the next set.

The next pic is Brooklyn Bridge.

The work which is most likely to become our most durable monument, and to convey some knowledge of us to the most remote posterity, is a work of bare utility; not a shrine, not a fortress, not a palace, but a bridge." - Harper's Weekly (1883)


This bridge over the East River joind the boroughs of Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. It is one of the largest suspensionbridges. It took more than 13 years to complete itand was completed in 1883. Pedestrians can walk on the top of the bridge. The architect was John Augustus Roebling. The cables are made out of steel.

That is me in the photo

Washington D.C. is the capitol of US. It is another fantastic place to visit.. Here is a photo of Washington monument in D.C. This beautiful, 555 feet sand colored obelisk was built in mid 1800s to honour our first president, George Washington. This photo was takenfrom Lincoln Memorial.

The next one is..I don't know what to call.. cabanas, sheds or simply colorful buildings. Found them on the beach in Sea Bright, New Jersey. Found interesting.

Great going Lakshmi...you look beautiful tourist in NY...thanks for the photos. NY has so much to see. Waiting to see some night picture at Time Sq.
If you had taken the ferry from Pier-1/2 then do share some picture.

DC is a good place, together with Baltimore harbour, nice summer evening entertainment. Boats can take you to the other side, forgetting the name and you could have lobster by the harbour. One other place I thought quite nice was Potomac river.

Sea Bright, New Jersey. surely looks colourful....may be they have to build another Tajmahal casino.....more colour than Atlantic City or not? A Jersey native can only confirm.

Why are those sheds/cabanas so colorful - any particular reason for it?
By the way, fantastic collection of pictures :)

Thanks Ashish for your positive comments. I have been to times square numerous times. I took the night pic 35 years ago. Lost many of them while moving. After buying the dig camera, haven't been to time square in the night. I will do it soon and post all the pics.

Indy, I spotted those colored buildings while driving on Ocean Blvd. I was in myjeans and sneakers and felt ashamed to walk inside to ask about them. All the people were inbarefeet and bathing suits.

Ashish, if you want to see the best bikinis, you should go to miami beach or Hawaii.


Hey guys, I went to Queens yesterday(by myself) and walked in Flushing meadow park and by Arthur Ashe stadium. I have been to this park many times while living in Queens 1n early 70s . Here are a few photos of this Unisphere. This is the world's largest globe given to 1964 worlds fair by US Steel corporation. It is 140 ft high, made out of steel and symbolizes universal peace.
