About this site

The photos of India were taken with a Canon EOS 500 SLR camera and a 35-70 zoom on cheap Kodak film. Later scanned by a Nikon LS30 film scanner. Therefore the photo quality is changing with my experience with film scanning.

The photos of Myanmar, Turkey and the Philippines were all taken with a digital Canon Ixus V2 camera, a small and very convenient model. Later retouched by Gimp, resized and sharpened with ImageMagick.

My latest achieval is a Fuji Finepix F10 which I used first for the photos of Iran. This is a nice little camera with exceptional results at darker places.

Editing is done with XEmacs under the FreeBSD operating system. The content management system used is PHPCMS, the gallery software a hacked version of SPGM.

This is deliberately a Windows(TM)-free zone.
