To GyurMaster: absurd

Thank you Gyrgy,
I actually liked the WS better too, but I thought it would be too strange and absurd for most people.
But this was only "near the end". The real end will come with my next...

To drt100: scanner

Thank you David,
I have a Plustek Optic Film 8200 scanner which I recently bought, but I use a scanning program downloaded (at a modest cost) from the net called VueScan. It's an American brand and...

To willperrett: Thank you Will

Hello Will,
Thanks for your surprising comments (not what you wrote but that you did write). I'm afraid I don't remember at which pub I had my lunch in St. Ives. Maybe the same?
Best wishes,
Gert

To kasianowak: red boat

Thank you Kasia,
I must admit I sank another red boat (cloned it out) because only half of it was seen at the bottom of the photo. But I think it's better to have just one boat breaking the pattern...

To alvaraalto: people

Thank you Rob,
All humans have the same value, but not necessarily always in photos. I had taken lots of pictures of people in Asia before 1980.
Regards,
Gert

Yes, I know it's not an airport, but it looks like they could have been preparing one. I tried to make a little joke. ;-)

To kasianowak: changing weather

Thank you Kasia,
Indeed, the weather seemed to be changing about every half hour. I had a clear blue sky and heavy rain and back and forth all in a matter of a few hours.
Best wishes,

Hello Bev,
It's interesting to know you could delete the photo and repost it soon after. I tried to post my today's photo yesterday, but something went wrong so I deleted it. But I thought I only...

To alvaraalto: standing?

Thank you Rob,
With the WS I think I was standing on the ramparts of an old fortress, but the main photo is a total mystery. Maybe I had first been to the Shipwreck Bars and got a bit high. That...

You mentioning "reasonable sharpness" made me take a closer look. Something went wrong when I tried to post this yesterday. I deleted it and found the copy I had used covered with a...

To macjake: duty

Thank you Craig,
No need to be sorry. Baby duty is really more important than being on TrekEarth. :)
Have a nice week,

To jmdias: helicopter

Thank you Jorge,
It was not curious to go there by helicopter. It was a regular British Airways flight using a helicopter because there was no proper airport on the island. It was a much quicker way...

To kasianowak: Thank you Kasia

Hello Kasia,
Thank you very much for your kind remarks. Yes, it's true, there are really people out there who prefer empty, dead streets and squares. :cool:

Thank you Rob,
The writer's name was William Trevor, Irish living in the UK. I met him again in 1983 for a new interview. Just the other day I found out that he passed away a couple of years ago at...

I know the green bike without a saddle is not electric, but the red one is, and I know it never had a saddle. There are thousands of them in every street and pavement in Stockholm. So what?

Thank you Bev for your kind words.
My diary mentions several Chinese dinners (and that I was sick and tired of them), and for lunch mainly sandwiches or fish & chips. But in one place I bought "some...

To GyurMaster: tone correction

Thank you Gyrgy,
I have made several small adjustments of the colours. I decided on this tone after it had been too blue, earlier too red. Someone complained of an earlier photo that the grass was...

Thank you Gyrgy,
No, that WS was quite intentional because I was so fascinated by the damage to the stones from 2000 years ago. But the "portrait" in my introduction is an accidental shot. I was...
