To mcmtanyel: buildings

Thank you Murat,
My ambition is never really to make documents of pretty buildings but to try to compose interesting photos with some atmosphere and life.
Best regards,
Gert

To fotka: sharpness

Thank you Zbigniew,
Many photos look unsharp on the TE site. This was one of them, so I had added to the note that it would look much better in a new tab. I hope you saw the larger version, which...

Before the pandemic the number of foreign tourists had risen sharply since 2000, so most Bhutanese should by now be quite used to seeing foreigners. I didn't notice any suspicions and I never had...

To PaulVDV: very normal

Thank you Paul,
I was surprised to find Bhutan such a relatively "normal" country. There is no doubt a lot of poverty, especially in faraway places, but most people looked reasonably well off,...

Hello Pierre,
I use a Plustek OpticFilm 8200i. But more important is that I use a scanning program called VueScan downloaded from the net at a relatively moderate cost.

To CMJC: scanner

Thank you Christine,
Yes, I have changed scanner since I made the first version, but I am sure the difference is mainly due to more experience and skill.

Hello again,
Don't waste your time looking through your old photos. Look at your latest WS instead. I realized I had sent that photo in a private mail.
Have a nice evening,

To lousat: colours

Thank you Luciano,
I am glad you appreciated it, but what changes would you have liked to see that would make the colours more "real"?

To foxy: no problems

Thank you Loong,
No problems. There are so many misspelled words and grammatical errors on TE that I am used to reading what I think people are meaning. So I got it right immediately. ;-)

To ahmet54: crop

Thank you Roland,
I like your crop, but I still like my own wider version too. I think they both would do well, but it's a good reminder of the importance of always having a different crop in mind...

To worldcitizen: executioner

Thank you Brenda,
Usually the executioner was someone who had been sentenced to death but was pardoned if he took the not very attractive job. It was an offer he couldn't refuse. "Master Mikael" was...

To ChrisJ: bag?

Thank you Chris,
So what do you call a plastic bag used for carrying home your groceries, or whatever you bought? (In this case three bottles of red wine.)

To PaulVDV: purchase

Thank you Paul,
I usually buy the things I need first and collect the photos afterwards.
Otherwise I would probably forget what I was supposed to do.
Best wishes,

Thank you Jorge,
Usually the hangman was a convicted murderer who was pardoned if he took the job, but this Mikael actually applied for the job of his own free will.
There were some strange habits...

To lousat: cost

Thank you Luciano,
These houses are owned by the city and managed by a municipal agency for culturally listed buildings. So they can't be bought. I have no idea of the monthly rent for an apartment,...

Hello Jean,
Thank you so much for always looking so carefully at my photos (even the workshops; not everyone does) and for writing such thoughtful critiques. I am honoured.
Have a nice Sunday.

The figure with the balloons was probably there temporarily while they were celebrating the shop's jubilee.
This is one of the main streets in the area so you have probably...
