Dingli...Pingli...I love the sound of this, Astrid...I am a bit of a sucker for submarine movies...
Picturit: Don't you love it smile. I assume you saw 'The hunt for Red October' with Sean Connery, Alec Baldwin, Sam Neill and James earl Jones??...
Astrid.
A fabulous image Astrid! I love the way you converted it.
Picturit: Thank you very much, It is a wonderful place and a grand view.
Astrid.
C'est très joli, dommage pour les barbelés
Picturit: I think they are so scared that somebody will climb over and do harm.
Astrid.
Look at you, making this into an infrared (?) conversion. It's brilliant. And I'll never forget that place.
Picturit: It was such a great place to visit and I loved the view. This radar was just a bonus.
Astrid.
Certainly a fascinating looking thing!!!
Picturit: To me this was such a surprise, I never knew this was there too...
Astrid.
Looks very retro.
Picturit: I had to do it this way.... I never was this close to a radar....

A nice dramatic picture of an important installation Astrid
Picturit: I need to do something with it after the scary sign..... I think they have an eye and an ear to the outer world here....

First I thought it would be a religious building - a fascinating photo! Oh, I see the heart sign!
Picturit: Just a radar. I never was that close to one.
Astrid.
Ain't traffic control sounds harmless Astrid, but I wonder what other purposes might be secreted in Malta's towers. I see that your name is mentioned on your nuclear fallout photograph.
Picturit: You never know what they see or hear... more than we know that is for sure.
Thank you for always trying to find and finding my name...
This is so much fun, you finding and me trying to hide it (most of the times)
Astrid.
Another place you cannot wear a pace maker.
Picturit: I noticed that at the gate... only to read the sign I had to come in close....
Astrid.

I like the negative thing you have done with the picture. Looks brooding.
Picturit: It was a great place to see, I did kind of wondered about the pacemaker and the radiation...
Astrid.
I like the sinister look you have given this shot Astrid. We have some buildings like this in parts of the U.K.
Picturit: I know we have some too, but we are never able to come in that close...
Astrid.
great photo, well processed...
Picturit: Thank you, Larry. I was so surprised..
Astrid.
your b&w version is magnificent Astrid... you added some very good effects to it as well....petersmile
Picturit: Thank you, Peter. After the scare with the radiation I figured out, this would be a good twiddle....
Astrid.
I think it might be radioactive Lady P
Picturit: I thought so too..... it looks like it wink
Astrid.
In a way it looks quite threatening in B&W
Picturit: I thought so too.... and never was so up close like this to a radar..
Astrid
really love your post processing on this one! And the name placement of course!
The black and white version makes it look sinister...
