Photographer's Note

Today's photos have been confusing me ever since I scanned them from Kodachrome slides several weeks ago. I really had no idea where they were taken, except that they were from somewhere on the island of Lombok.

My diary from that journey to Indonesia in 1976 doesn't say anything about taking such and such a photo from this or that place on Lombok. I had a suspicion that at least the main photo was from a small port town, also called Lombok, on the east coast of the island. But it wasn't until yesterday evening, when I prepared this note, that I was able to identify both of these photos as from Lombok town, or just outside it.

Travelling with the Google car on the outskirts of Lombok town I was able to identify the mountain as the Rinjani. Its silhouette in these photos is exactly how it looks from that part of the island.

Gunung (Mount) Rinjani is the highest mountain of Lombok with its peak reaching 3,726 meters above sea level.

One more fairly anonymous photo in the WS.
