Nothing artistic here but I thought it might be interesting in light of recent history. The "Tribal Territory" that is mentioned on the news is quite real (and a bit surreal) and has always been a dangerous place. I snapped this with a cheap rangefinder camera while heading for the Khyber Pass west of Peshawar, Pakistan in 1966-67. This is a scan from the original Ektrachrome slide.

I discovered a cave full of human skeletons while exploring along the coast of Okinawa. The cave was reachable by foot only at low tide. Some research suggests that these remains are the result of a local war over fishing rights between the residents of the coastal area and another island some hundreds of years ago. Canon FT SLR, Okinawa, 1969. This is a scan from the original Ektachrome slide.

These fishing boats were photographed off the South China Sea coast of Okinawa in 1972. Canon F1. This is a scan from the original Ektrachrome slide.

A quick grab shot of a bird that was busily hopping around on a picturesqe tile roof of a building on Okinawa. Scan from an Ektachrome slide, probably taken with a Canon FT.
