Photographer's Note

There is not much to say about this photo or the WS. I took them at a bird market in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, which I found by coincidence when somebody was showing me how to get into the palace grounds "through the back door" and where to climb the ruins (as shown in my last upload).

Birds should not be kept in cages, nor should any other animal, so I don't feel particularly sorry for the traders who were clearly doing bad business. At least this salesman looks terribly bored, and so does the man in the WS.

For my last upload I accidentally posted the intended WS as the main photo. This time I haven't been quite sure which photo to choose for main upload, so if I mix them up again it doesn't really matter. But my intention is to use the wider view with a lot of cages as main photo.

A closer view will hopefully be seen in the WS. In any case they were both scanned from Kodachrome slides, taken in mid-August 1976.

Song title reference (minus question mark): The Beatles.
