Default Images of Eastern Europe and Asia

I guess I'm getting nostalgic... Here are some outdated travel pictures (2002-2004), the very few I managed to scan before my scanner let me down. Most were in the photo album we had on the previous board version, so you might recognize them.

Sorry to those who don't like black and white...

Laos and Vietnam first !

I'm still not convinced by digital cameras' quality so I'm sticking to my all manual basic Yashica. And I bring my lenses : 50 mm (my favorite, all of the above pictures were taken with it), a wide angle and a zoom (that I rarely use though). I bring loads of films with me, because I'm sold to one in particular, Ilford Delta.

What do you use ?

Yep, Romania is photogenic. These images are from remote areas, except the clock tower in Sighisoara, Transylvania. The long hours spent on lousy train seats were worth it !

Thanks for the suggestion. I had a quick look at the site, it looks great. How does it work, do you have pictures or articles of your own in this magazine ?

^^^ In fact, there aren't digital photos. Some of them I had the opportunity to improve in the dark room, but my scanner is of low quality so they suffer from it anyway. On the pictures above, only the first two of Romania and the Auschwitz luggages were worked on.


Ok, now you got me all positive about my photos so I submitted one at the Passport contest. I called it Auschwitz Ghosts... The number of votes doesn't count, so don't feel pressure to add yours. Jake, did you submit one ?
