Pictures 745 and 746 are just incredible - in pic 745 it looks like the left side dragon is screwing the drainpipe while in pic 746 it looks that the Jugend-head announces something in that small black box which could be loudspeaker but actually it is a spotlight.
I don't know if you did it on purpose, but it has turned out very funny!
In overall, I like your pictures - very nice framing and a creative touch... Very interesting... just... Why do you use so heavy quality compression? I would be ready to wait much longer for pictures to load, if they would be more qualitative and without those compression artifacts.

Thanks! And no, the funny pics were not taken on purpose.
And I didn't realize that heavy quality compression. It's something about the features of loading up on my photoserver, I suppose. Sorry about that.

Thank you for this wonderful thread! I'm personally very glad that you had the will to cover Estonia from so many different angles. You now know many places in Estonia better than most Estonians do But also pictures of Helsinki and Latvia were very interesting and enjoyable.

Congratulations on a masterful thread, Benonie! Really a marvelous travelogue and a beautiful introduction to the charms and beauties of two of the three Baltic countries, obviously a surprise to many who looked in here.
