But that is their own problem. At least they get a chance, and you don't make the others so tired. :cool:

To PaulVDV: public

Thank you Paul,
I also was here before the digital era, and I also don't have many photos to look at. It's very unfortunate.
Most parts of Syria hasn't seen any major fighting the last 2-3 years,...

Hello Benny,
In Swedish we have the word "folkgrupp", meaning exactly the same as "bevolkingsgroep", and I agree it's much better. I estimate that "minorities" are always seen in a national...

To PaulVDV: note

Thank you Paul,
If you had had the stamina to read the entire hopelessly long note you would have found my description of that empty area. :D
Best regards,

To BennyV: disturbing

Thank you Benny,
The "disturbing" persons were not very interesting. Just a boy standing so far to the side that he was cut in half, and a girl partly hidden in the darkness. They just disturbed the...

To GyurMaster: ugly BW

Thank you Gyφrgy,
I have some very ugly B&W photos from England in 1964, so I may eventually post 2 or 3, but not immediately. And I have lots of other probably very ugly photos I haven't seen...

To jmdias: maybe destroyed

Thank you Jorge,
The terrorists caused a lot of destruction and damage in Palmyra, but it is unclear to me exactly which monuments are lost. Possibly these pillars remain, but I wouldn't advice you...

Thank you John for your well considered comments. Looking at your photo in the link I think I was standing several meters to the left outside your view. My angle in the main photo could hardly have...

To kasianowak: composition

Thank you Kasia for your kind words again. I don't remember how much I considered the compositions in those days. Maybe I had a sense of it, maybe I couldn't go closer because I didn't want to walk...

To Gerrit: tree

Thank you Gerrit,
Judging from the view shown on the Google map (Map: view) the tree has been cut down. Or maybe it just died and fell on its own on a stormy day).

To kasianowak: street photographer

Thank you Kasia for your kind comments today.
These two photos were just lucky coincidences. My life as a street photographer started in Asia in the autumn of 1972, when I had my first real camera,...

Hello Viviane,
While this subject is on the agenda again, could you please do me a favour? Several months ago I posted a photo from the Cote d'Ivoire but I could not enter the name of the city,...

Jorge,

I am well aware that every country has so many aspects and that those that are regarded as the most "typical" are basically clichιs. I just wanted to say that this bird in this pond could...

Hello,
It's very unlikely I have any such photos, but I'll show you if I find any. I will also have to check if I have any photos from Budapest in 1969.

To emka: stratford

Thank you Malgo,
I passed through Stratford in 1964, when the husband of my mother's friend drove me to London from the north. But it was a Shakespeare year (400 years after his birth) and as far as...

Thank you Malgo,
I love the TE map, giving so much colour for so little. Two weeks in New York and one day in Moscow was enough to have half of the world painted. I feel sorry for those who go to...

Thank you Kasia,
I guess Bushy Park qualifies enough as a close neighbourhood to give you an alibi for not favouring faraway lands. ;-)
But maybe you have been somewhere on the other side of the...
