I have been taking pictures hobby-wise and sometimes for work for over 20 years. Yes, my age is showing, lol. ( started as a young teen) 

I've been fortunate enough to have traveled a lot before I got married, hence the images from different countries. 

 

Some images have been enhanced via shading/hue via photoshop . I love to play with light and shadows. 

 

I haven't taken any pictures lately, but this category reminded me of how much I used to love it. I'll take it up again.

Thanks for sharing! I loved Venice on my two trips there! It's always nice to see everyones perspective on the cities that they visit. Share more and I'll keep looking!

Thanks, unfortunately I don't have more photos of Italy I can share ( too personal) but I will try my best with others here in Lebanon.

I'd love that! 

 

What was the story with the building in the second photo? What happened to it?

Oh, they tore it down, now it's a very expensive parking lot. But it looked that ugly for many weeks.

Thanks @Cannabis

 

I don't travel anymore ( I wasn't rich either. I traveled for work.)

So now I'm just trying to take pictures of things that catch my eye, that give me the ' this would be a nice poster or postcard' vibe. Mostly landscapes, and around the city. :)

 

Or if I see something weird, out of place, or downright ugly. I take that as a personal challenge. :D

@Trapezeo

 

Sorry, I forgot to take my phone with me when I went to that area last week, but tonight I didn't forget. :)

 

This is what is in place of the torn down building now.

Yes, it does look very different now.
