To Royaldevon: rotation

Hello Bev,
I saw your suggestion to rotate this photo 90 degrees left, so of course I had to try it. No longer a natural scenery, but a great Rorschach test. :D
Cheers,

Thank you Paul,
I had the intention to see other Tibetan towns, but once in Lhasa I realized making further travel arrangements wasn't as easy as in some other parts of the country. Long distances,...

To GyurMaster: changes

Thank you Gyrgy,
Actually, very much had changed between 1986 and 2006, but you couldn't really see that in Malgo's comparison. And since 2006 very much more has changed. Now it looks completely...

To emka: clod

Thank you Malgo,
In Swedish the word would probably be "klant". :D
Where I grew up in the countryside in the 50's you were lost without a bike. I have never cycled in Stockholm since I moved here...

To PaulVDV: differences

Thank you Paul.
Although I don't remember clearly after so many years, I think I could probably tell the difference between Tibetans and Han Chinese in at least 90 % of the cases. Very often it was...

Hello John,

Since the moderators are not American, and not employed by Facebook, they will probably not regard nudity in art as offensive.
It was interesting to see that the wooden lady has...

To GyurMaster: no mistake

Hello Gyrgy,
Thanks for your kind comments and for adding this to your favourites. But I don't really agree that cutting off the legs of the two nearest women in the WS should be a mistake. How...

Thank you Rob,
Yes, the Tibetans and Uigurs of Xinjiang don't seem to have a bright future as ethnic and cultural minorities. Han Chinese are actively encouraged to move to those areas and the...
