# If one saw a friend one a television or heard them on the phone or radio, one doesn’t make any Bracha for seeing or hearing them. <Ref>Yalkut Yosef (vol 3 pg 406) </ref>
# All the below Brachot for certain sights are made if one hasn’t seen them in thirty days. <Ref>224:13 </ref>
# One can still make the Bracha upon seeing a wonder of nature even after one has left as long as the sight still impresses or inspires oneself. <Ref>Halichot Shlomo 23:26 writes that if one didn't make the bracha immediately upon seeing the ocean, one may make the bracha as long as the sight effects oneself (one is still inspired or in awe). </ref>
==Bracha for seeing a house of Avoda Zara==
# Nowadays we do not make the Bracha for seeing a house of Avoda Zara (which was Baruch Atta…SheNatan Erech Apayim LeOvri Retzono). <Ref> S”A 224:1 writes that for seeing an Avoda Zara the Bracha is Baruch Atta…SheNatan Erech Apayim LeOvri Retzono. The Mishna Brurah 224:2 adds that this Bracha also applies if one only sees the house of the Avoda Zara. However, the Rama 224:1 writes clearly that our minhag is not to make this Bracha nowadays since we see these houses of Avoda Zara often. Mishna Brurah 224:3 extends the case to even if one didn’t see the house of Avoda Zara in thirty days one still doesn’t make the Bracha. </ref>
