Thank you for your always stronger support. I'm really glad that you like this series, which is about to finish. Tomorrow I will upload the last one....but it doesn't mean I have nothing more to propose to the community...WinkWinkWink

So much going on. It sums up "busy" but everything is clearly seen.

I tried to emphasize the crowdy confusion you can find in any airport when disembarked passengers enter the arrival lounge Wink

Crowded confusion is an excellent description, and I'll add: wonderful surrealism.

I really like images like this - they give my brain a visual translation exercise!
I find the waiting areas in CdG very stressful, but the food in the departure lounges is always worth waiting for.
Love the combination of elements here, Al.
I'm already looking forward to your next project!
Like the reflection ... Adds to the overall movement

It's the different layers of figures, all unaware of each other. Superb.

So you got off the train. This extends the theme very well. A favourite for me.

This is an incredible image, complicated, telling a complicated story!
I for one will be sorry to see it come to an end, however I look forward to seeing your next idea, this set of life as you see it has been just great, Well done Al well done indeed. You have a great eye and a great talent that is something you just can't learn.

As always this is stunning lots to see, lots to like

What is real and what is have given us a fine visual puzzle.
Your photography certainly made your trip more interesting, finding different things to shoot. You have made great use of your time.

love the reflections in the windows, they put everything on the same plane and we are forced to interpretate the image.
great work, I'll be missing the series but also curious to see what's next Grin
