"One happy island" is the tourist slogan of the island of Aruba, that's what seems to boast with gesture and smile this friendly island dweller.

Hi Jean - a great photo of happiness and cacti!

Bonjour, cher Jean,
J'aime le large sourire sur le visage de cet habitant.
Le vélo bleu flashy n'est pas mal non plus.
Quant au reste, cela respire le soleil et la chaleur !

Hello Jean,
What a charming image and lovely advertisement for Aruban tourism. I like the square crop and the excellent colour contrasts.

Bonjour Jean,

Tu as bien capturé l'expression souriante de l'homme. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails des cactus et du hamac. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Bonjour Jean
super geste de la main, très beau portrait de cet homme cool et très sympathique, merveilleux le sourire
belle journée

Bonjour Jean,

Je crois bien que si je vivais dans cette île, moi aussi je serais toujours de bonne humeur et souriant. Tu as su trouver l'exemple parfait, même si l'environnement semble assez piquant.

Salut Jean
Une scène vivante avec cet autochtone heureux
Une île heureuse certes à condition qu'il n'y ait pas de cyclone
Sincères amitiés

Hello Jean,
I love that blue bike with an orange seat matching the flag. The fellow seems enthused.

Not the most popular place to spend vacations, maybe it is better without crowds and thousands stands and gadgets, the biker seems to invite us very friendly :)

Dobar dan.
Interesantan pogled i trenutak ...
Lepo pokazano, dobar kontrast i ostrina, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak. Interesantno mesto i lep trenutak sa covekom koji se smeje.
Zelim vam lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.

Good day.
An interesting view and a moment ...
Beautifully shown, good contrast and sharpness, nice colors, nice moment. An interesting place and a nice moment with a laughing man.

Salut Jean

This is not most people's idea of a desert island. This looks more like Arizona than the Caribbean. Good sharpness and repetition of the cacti and the happy local with a thumbs up steals the show. Tfs!

Ciao Jean, lovely composition with fantastic cactus, really seems an happy island, beautiful light, wonderful natural colors and splendid clarity,very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Jean,
Quite a joyful pose! Blue flag and that bicycle match well and I have a feeling that it is not a pure coincidence. Those cacti make goof framing for this scene and certainly add local ambience.
