To lousat: you are right

Thank you Luciano,
You are right. The man was just to the left of the tree, standing (or walking) with his back to me, but only half of his body seen. He destroyed the composition.

Gert

To emka: turtle and tickets

Thank you Malgo,

I was not delighted to travel with a giant turtle and to see how the owner had drilled holes through its front claws to tie them together. I was also disturbed to se how people...

To emka: good old days of TE

Thank you Malgo,

I agree the photos were generally much better on TE 8-10 years ago. Most really good photographers have left, as well all know. I joined the site because of the high quality of...

To GyurMaster: camera

Thanks György,
I only had one camera. I started that day by taking the last few Kodachromes on that roll, then switched to the Ilford for the next quite many shots, finishing that roll the next day....

To emka: lembu

Thank you Malgo,

To worldcitizen: flags

Thank you Brenda,
The red and white flag is the national flag. I don't know about the others. Maybe provincial flags or the city flag. I think they were all there because of Independence Day the...

To emka: borobudur

Thank you Malgo,
I was obviously also reminded of Iceland (where I have never been) when seeing these photos again, except for the green hills in the background of the WS.
But I was surprised that...

Hello Benny (and Miguel(,
Your comments inspired me to take a closer look at the man to the right, with the red shirt and blue jacket, who I believe is footballer George Best. I think the man behind...

To emka: blue

Thank you Malgo,
I guess you are right about too much blue, but it's too late do anything about that now. I would have needed to make a new scan, because I can't adjust it now. I have already made...

To worldcitizen: poop

Thank you Paul,
According to my diary I was at the station at around 6 AM, so maybe the train left at 7, arriving in Yogyakarta after 8 PM. Yes, a pretty long journey but going through an...
