another fine shot, Tom. i like the balanced illumination here
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ayush.
I love that arch, and the lighting fixtures. It seems a really great place to stroll around!
Tom Wilson: A very pleasant promenade!

There doesn't seem to be any old folks in this city, Tom...are they sitting at home by the fireside?
Tom Wilson: Interesting you should say that, Ray, because Lithuania has lost about a million in population through emigration - and mainly young people - in 1990 it had 3.8 million, now only 2.7 million - so, like you, I'm surprised that the population appeared so young.

Great shot. Siauliai doesn't show anything from the old USSR days.
Tom Wilson: Not in the centre - but the apartment blocks on the outskirts are very Soviet.

I imagine you enjoyed your stroll down here, Tom
Tom Wilson: Yes, indeed - and some interesting street art en route, which you'll see soon smile
I like how the lamps appear to be reaching out to the pedestrians.
Tom Wilson: Rather crazy, aren't they?

The arch must commemorate something perhaps?
Tom Wilson: I assume it may do, Chris, but I didn't check.

It looks very civilised Tom.
Tom Wilson: In spite of Lithuania being the last pagan country in Europe smile
That is an unusual and interesting Arch Tom
Tom Wilson: Yes - don't know what it commemorated, if anything!
cadrage extra!! amitiés
Tom Wilson: Merci, Jean Pierre!
I would bet that archway boasts lights at least part of the year.
Tom Wilson: I wouldn't be at all surprised, Mary.
I really like those lamp standards, most unusual.
Tom Wilson: Neat, aren't they?
Looks like a lively town...
Tom Wilson: It did seem to be thriving, Larry.
