Photographer's Note

A few people didnt like the large shadow area in the foreground of my last post. Personally I thought it made for a more out-of-the-ordinary composition, but as the shadow does occupy a large proportion of the frame, I can understand why some didnt like it.

So here is a more conventional composition this is looking across to the centre of Tasiilaq, and you can see the hill right in the middle of the photograph (to the right of the church) from which I took the photograph that I last posted (you may be able to pick out the green and red houses on the right of the hill that you can see on the left and right of the previous photograph).

The two large red buildings in the bottom left and centre are the post office and one of Tasiilaqs two supermarkets. Most of the roads around Tasiilaq are dirt roads, but some of the main roads in the town centre are bitumenised.

There are few fences around any of the properties, and nobody seemed to mind where you walked. I suppose that as there are a relatively small number of tourists (I prefer the term traveller in places like this) who visit the east coast of Greenland, the local people dont mind the odd photographer wandering through their backyards taking pictures.
