Like a friend said "hay tiempo para todo"=there is time for everything. Smile
A lighter image for hope and love.
I took this picture this afternoon. This has been the epicenter of the largest battles with the police and national guard in Caracas. This is Plaza Altamira or Plaza Francia.

Thank you for all your concern. These days will be very tough, we must continue pushing for a change here, or else...

Another powerful image of Venezuela, Marian. One of the amazing things about life under stress....war, revolution, repression, is that life goes on. We do romance, school, weddings, funerals.....it is what makes us human. Great image.

Opt out.....
Less stress
This situation might change...
But another will replace it.....
After my cancer I had time to ponder... I realised nothing really changes

The selective colour works particularly well in this fine composition.

As above. Plus - I'm not a fan of selective colour, it needs to actually say something (apart from 1Look how clever I am... ') It does here.

Moira put that very well regarding selective colour popping.
Very perceptive of you to do it and to see the good aspects of life amidst the strife.
