Five Stans 08

Dear Reader (2023-11-05),
First of all, I did warn you about me getting distracted by a new sparkly project.  Actually the project for next year’s Exposure Festival has been a work in progress for a while.  Now, there is a degree of urgency to get things ready for print, and this means I haven’t made the time to edit “Five Stans” images for a week or so.

In today’s post I present a collection of Kyrgyzstan images from:
~ A boat ride on Lake Issyk Kul under a grey sky with the occasional noteworthy cloudscape,
~ A new day,
~ A walk along a country road where we see a mechanical marvel hard at work,
~ Visit the ancient city of Burana (a World Heritage Site), where little remains but a rebuilt tower.

To remove the annoying band across the top of the full size image, click anywhere on the image.

You are welcome to share a link to this page with others.
As always, all comments are welcome and sought.
Cheers, Sean

  1. A lovely set of images! Especially 2,3,4,5, I was going oooh, aaaah! Looking at 12 brings to mind a film I saw long ago at the Plaza. The details are hazy, but it involved a guy riding a motorbike around the desert in Iraq or Iran, looking for someone or something. Along the way he discovers a big fort where the main occupation is making bricks to make the fort bigger and higher. No purpose for this was given. Even though I didn’t understand what was going on in the movie I watched the movie with fascination, though there was little dialogue and much of that was badly translated according to a native speaker. I think mainly because I didn’t know what was going on, had no idea what might happen next, or why it might or might not happen, and had zero comprehension of the movie conventions that were assumed when making the movie.
