The version you had intended to post is clearly improved, with more distinct colours and contrasts. But without the direct comparison the version we see is perfectly good too. So not much harm was...

To emka: ws

Thank you Malgo,
I also like the WS better and had decided it would be the main photo, but I happened to mix them up. :o
Don't worry that you haven't seen Yogyakarta and its surroundings. You have...

Thank you György,
I agree that the WS is better. I had intended it as the main photo but happened to mix them up. :confused:

To Miguel82: workshop

Thank you Miguel,
You are right about the workshop giving a better general view. I had intended that as the main photo but I happened to mix them up. :(

To PaulVDV: long train journey

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...

To ikeharel: preference

Thank you Ike,
I just realized I had mixed up the photos. It was my intention to use the WS as main photo, so I share your preference. :)

To alvaraalto: batavia

Thank you Rob,
I wondered in my diary from 1976 why the Dutch didn't create anything nicer, like the British and French colonial powers did here and there. The canals of central Jakarta weren't...

To emka: borobudur

Thank you Malgo,
I will eventually come to Borobodur, but I never saw Prambanan.
I nearly decided this photo wasn't fit for showing, because it was noisy and unsharp, but somehow I managed to make...

To burmaman: diagonal lines

Thank you Ronny,
Yes, those lines were tram tracks, probably old but still in use in 1991. Most probably the trams are still running along this street.

To PaulVDV: varanasi

Thank you Paul,
Yes, I had spent almost a week in Varanasi several years earlier and this train passed nearby in the middle of the night. No need or wish to get off.
I originally uploaded the...

Thank you Bev,
It is probably thanks to the policeman in the foreground that the traffic is running so smoothly, very orderly and well organized. ;-)
The other photo from this street was taken only...

To kasianowak: lost WS

Thank you Kasia for nice comments and the fav.
Now I have seen the WS that was lost with your last upload. It's a fantastic photo and should have been another main upload.
Kind regards,

To ChrisJ: sharpen

Thank you Chris,
I also thought I might have sharpened it a little more, but when I did, it turned too noisy. Trying to clean the noise didn't make it any better.

Hello Christine,
It's a tricky question. Many years ago I was on Malta when one day a storm had blown dust from the Sahara across the sea. The sky was completely red, in fact everything looked red,...

To PaulVDV: suffering?

Thank you Paul,

I actually didn't enter my mind that this cow would be suffering from anything. I can't think of any disease that could have caused those red marks, and I hardly think they caused...

That, I admit, will be difficult. But they are planning several new stations, so who knows how they will look?

Hej Lars,
Tack för att du gjorde dig besväret att läsa noten. Det är du nog nästan ensam om.

To jean113: yawning

Thank you Jean,
I am almost certain he was just yawning. Or maybe he had seen something on Facebook making him swear silently to himself. At least I didn't hear anything, and I was quite close....

To alvaraalto: surprised

Hello Rob,
I was surprised that you found this photo of a rather unknown music group suitable among your favourites, but I am very honoured.

Thank you John.
I also lost my notes a few times, but now I usually avoid that by first posting just a few lines, then I add the rest by using "edit". There seems to be some kind of strange bug, but...

Thank you Benny,
I really thought that if anyone on TE had ever heard of Thomas Mapfumo it had to be you. Of course I was right. ;-)

Thanks Kari,
The hand is definitely unfortunate, but I decided it doesn't entirely spoil the photo.
Have a nice weekend,
