Photographer's Note

Well, that was before Indiana Jones by the way!.. :-)
i was a clean cut,cool guy in those days in my late twenties.. ;-)) living in Amman for couple of years.
My first passionate years with photography,, (93-94) developing my own slides at home, using Velvia or RDP all the time to indulge myself! just for my own pleasure, nothing else!..

Damn expensive film though! thankfully, developing by myself was saving some of my pennies! lol.. Anyway then i got bored with it, and lost my interest in photography for a long time until i find myself in India recently..
(so nearly 12 years.. Well this is me. ;-)

Finally i am back with my old slides now for a while.. I am out of India! it was hard a bit.. i felt like it was a bl..y duty to post a decent shot every single day! you feel like you are obliged to do that and it makes you addicted after a while, then you get stuck!!.. i am tired u know? i am an old man now.. :-))

now, ill be able to post some of my old slides from time to time in my comfortable seat without moving anywhere just like the rest of TE people here for a while thankfully.. lol

Anyway, this is Petra as probably everyone knows from the movie called "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade ". Its an old ancient and secret ruins of a civilization named "Nabatean" -not Arabic!- (until it was rediscovered in 1812) afaik..

Good thing about this shot is that i have never shown it to anyone apart from some few friends of mine.. and luckely i have not seen any similar shot so far, (since 1993!)-i mean something similar with a that kind of glorious horseman!! (PS. if anyone knows it, i would be glad to see that..)

It is just a scanning from Velvia, and was my development in the bathroom in those days..
No PP. just as it is.. an outstanding Velvia imo (my all time favourite.)

(PS. couple of days ago Fujifilm told me that Velvia
100 is released recently with a resolution rate which breaks a world-record!.. Oh,my god! that is even two times faster now.. Maybe i should throw my rubbish D70 and grab my old great F90x after all! oh, good old days!.. LOL)
