Tried hard to come up with something interesting for this weeks theme , looked up the internet for punny funs/funny puns the ready made ones of course --so this pun is not mine---( hopefully i didn't infringe on any copyright thing ... ) and found a cute and short one suitable to this daily life scene taken on one of my morning walks around Old Havana, yeah.. the pun goes like this :

" If there's ever no one around to tell , just tell-a-phone "

My humble contribution to the " Puns " theme suggested by Peter ( Eosnut )in the forum and opened by Fiona ( Wackymob ) thanks to both of you for having gotten the theme on the roll this week and thank you all for looking,

The last time I visited my old country, the Philippines, was in 2007. I was very disappointed to cell towers in beautiful remote forests of the islands! Granted new technologies made communication convenient but it kind of ruin the natural beauty of the landscape. Good capture of this lady and good use of the shadows to create depth. Sharp details and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

  • Great

Good approach and nice note attached to this picture.
The light is well handled and exposure is superb.
Good job!

Hi Carol,
Interesting image and adjacent note.Simple image yet well presented.

This up to date lady is a fine contrast to the architecture with the warped floor.A very interesting and stimulating picture.Friendly regards Otto.
