    not a pic but... news

    This is the chilling moment soprano Ayleen Jovita Romero defies the silence curfew, imposed under martial law by the government of Sebastián Piñera in Chile and sings the song “El derecho de vivir en paz”, (The right to live in peace) by Victor Jara.
    Such is the silence because of the martial law, that her voice echoes through the buildings, while people from their windows and balconies are “holding their breath” to the words of her song, until the moment she hits the final note and a wave of applause by dozens of people fills the night and space of a neighborhood under police siege.

    The culprit behind a mysterious disappearance of poppies from an Australian war memorial has been unmasked as a broody bird. Staff at the tomb of the unknown soldier in the capital Canberra had been left scratching their heads when they began noticing the poppies disappear in early October. But it turns out the thief was in fact a pigeon, who had built a colourful home near a stained glass window at the Australian War Memorial. A maintenance worker reportedly clocked the carefully crafted nest in the Hall of Memory in late October.



    Blind 104-year-old World War Two veteran Ron Freer from Kent was the oldest parading at the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday this year 2019

    Shanghai skyscrapers' viewing platforms re-open as virus eases


    High-profile fixtures of Shanghai's skyline began to re-open Thursday on a limited basis in a sign of confidence that the coronavirus was being tamed in the Chinese financial centre.


    The 632-meter Shanghai Tower -- the world's second-tallest building -- and the futuristic Oriental Pearl Tower Radio and Television Tower were among skyscrapers to announce viewing platforms and other public areas had opened again, subject to various restrictions.

    Thank you for those contributors that make the attempt to reinvigorate Mr. Lick's outstanding premium news-photo thread, as we might appreciate the daily work and dedication that came natural to him before his untimely passing.

    He's watching, I'm sure.

    Still astounded as to the views this popular thread receives on a regular basis, even when off-n-on inactive.
    Four million and change - and yet grows [hits/views] substantially.

    Cheers all!
