To emka: Thank you Malgo

Hello Malgo,
Thanks for your interesting comments. You probably told me about this architect before, or maybe you mentioned him in a note to one of your own photos, but I didn't remember all these...

To macjake: wow!

Thanks Craig,

So you really read the note! You must be one of very few. What a nice surprise.

As for the conical hats I am sure they are still just as common. Even though the number of foreign...

Hello again Jorge,
I never said anything about sharpening. Over-sharpened photos look terrible. I just wanted a little bit more contrast and brightness. :D
Cheers,

Hello,

I made a WS just for myself to see if I could make it better. It was clearer and brighter without changing the impression of the weather. A photo straight out of a digital camera does not...

Oh! I'm sorry, I didn't notice that. I just saw a number of workshops and couldn't tell them from the originals. But I did wonder why you behaved so strangely. ;)
Best wishes,

To jhm: not dangerous

Thank you John,
No, Vietnam was not dangerous for Americans or any other people from the west. The Vietnamese were surprisingly forgiving. They had laid the war behind them and were only looking...

To alvaraalto: the war

Thank you Rob,
Indeed most Vietnamese have so many other things on their minds now than the war. Already in 1995, when I wrote stories for the 20th anniversary of the end of the war, I noted that...

Hello Kasia,

Hello Kasia,
I am quite happy with this photo myself, especially considering the terrible state of the negative, so I am glad you like it. Thank you very much for making it a favourite.
Have a nice...

To kasianowak: very likely

Thank you Kasia,
Although I haven't been back here for 44 years I am pretty sure they still use camels, or dromedaries actually. They were not meant for tourists, because I was rather alone, and...

To emka: no need

Hello Malgo,
Thank you for your comments today. Brunei should not be an impossible country for you, but there should be absolutely no reason to go there. There is not much worth seeing, and I have a...

Hello Kasia,
Thank you for your kind comments. Yes, there was a lot more washed out sky originally but I thought I reasonably saved two of these photos by cropping heavily at the top. I didn't want...

Hello John,
