    Nastepny ciekawy portret z twojej podrozy do Indii.
    W Uzbekistanie i Kirgistanie taki lozko-stol nazywa sie.. tapczan. Prawda, ze brzmi znajomo? :-) Jak wspomina Gert w komentarzu, w tamtych krajach te siedziska sa o wiele bardziej dekoracyjne. Na srodku znajduje sie cos w rodzaju ministolika (troche jak w Japonii) na ktorym stawia sie potrawy.

    Fascinating landscape. I like the way you captured the spot of light in the middle distances.
    Seems like a good weather for Iceland. Every time I go there it rains all the time!

    I haven't seen this one yet. Interesting document showing the streets of Kabul long time ago (following our recent discussion I'm beginning to realise they may still look like this).
    Interesting comment from Serghei (notwithstanding the fact that not all America is US) made me think of how this humble plant has conquered the world. It's one of the staple foods in my country and many others.
    And... they are very photogenic, don't you think? :-)

    Hi Gert
    Interesting upload, priceless insight into the local culture. Most people, when they travel, just take photos of the tourist attractions, only very few have a proper look around and take interest in the way people live.
    I have similar observations from Turkey and Kurdistan 41 years later (more Turkey, especially SE, than Kurdistan). Women were present in the streets but far fewer than men and usually accompanied by someone else. But what really struck me was that most salespeople, shop assistants/owners and waiters were men. Not ALL but more than 90%.

    Hi Justinas
    Amazing landscape! Beautiful colours and well controlled balanced exposure (did you use filters or post processing?).
    Even the flower in the bottom left is perfectly placed in the frame.

    Hi Craig
    You couldn't choose a better subject to show everyday life in that city! Both the building and the car are very old but there is a pronounced contrast between the crumbling fašade and the shining red paint of the vehicle.
    Nice one, thanks for sharing!

    Hi Brian
    This is very impressive. I like your idea to concentrate on details, you wouldn't be able to see that teddy bear if the airplane was just a dot in the blue sky. I also like the way you conveyed movement here.

    Trzy to bardzo dobra liczba do takich ulicznych portretow. Panowie swietnie pozuja. :-) Zlapalas bardzo dobry moment, kiedy kubeczek wedruje do ust, ale zatrzymuje sie na chwile, zeby ujac ten gest na zdjeciu.

    Super praca! Uwielbiam takie swiatlo przebijajace sie przez delikatna mgielke. Do tego jeszcze te jesienne liscie... Swietna kompozycja zdominowana przez linie pionowe i przekatne - cienie na ulicy stanowia jakby przedluzenie slonecznych promieni. Naprawde bardzo mi sie podoba.

    Hi Will
    If there is any reason for you to apologise it would be for not posting MORE of these fantastic b&w photos!
    The mood of the place very well conveyed and explained well in the note. I really like the way the foreground dominates the composition with its strong pattern and old times feel.
    Have a nice day

    Wlasnie obejrzalam twoje zdjecia z Kapadocji. Bardzo ladne. Tutaj swiatlo w polaczeniu z ciemnym niebem tworzy niepowtarzalna atmosfere.
    Te "grzyby" to chyba najciekawsze formy skalne w tym rejonie. Ja zrobilam kilka ich zdjec niedaleko miasta Urgup.

    Hi Gert
    Having taken a break from TE for 3 weeks I seem to be following your journey through Afganistan in a wrong direction. But it's still a pleasure to look at these photos. You mentioned your trip in 2001 and that Balkh looked unchanged since 1973. How about people in the street? Where they still wearing mostly traditional clothes? I suppose so considering that the country was largely under Taliban rule but is it only a stereotype?
    Btw, I also have a lot of technical problems while uploading to TE. The colours are almost always different than on my screen and other websites.
