Wow! I never knew thay had a day for museums as well!!
The second pic is nice. But the first one is difficult to make out due to the second reflection.

WoW...two lovely compositions especially the reflections in the first one is magnificently done...colourful and very well composed shots!

Loved the pictures. By the way can you speak Greek?

@Sigma, Thank You. The first one is composed deliberately in this fashion. If you enlarge the pic, you can see an eye of a boy, 2 pots in the left part. This is something comparable with modern art :-)

@Kalyan, Thanks; and you got the mystery behind the first one :-)

@Mridula, Thank You. No I can not speak Greek. I can hardly stay few months in any country and thus difficult for me to learn these European languages. But yes, I can say Good Morning and Good Night in Greek :-)

I liked the first one very much. What a wonderful compositions of reflections. I could see everything in this picture. I guess it is 3 pics in one ? Tell me how many?

The second one I think you have played a little more colours.

And sorry for coming late. Very busy. :(

@Cuckoo; Yes, Cuckoo. Its 3 picture composed in one by Picasa :-) Very well guess.
Thanks for coming even after busy schedule (may be because of work, tell me if I am wrong), but your comment is important for me, so keep coming.
