    Back in time, back to Bali...... Padang Bay, Bali, in 1999

    Here are some looks back in time, to 1999, a whole 12 years ago. They were taken when I visit Padang Bay with the Crystal Symphony that year.

    Not the best of quality, but they are old scans transferred through several hard-discs and really old. The paper copies no longer exist either.

    Well, here they are:

          They may be old photos, but they paint an interesting picture.

            Dear Ivy,

            Thank you so much for your kindness.

            They are indeed old images, and of a totally different quality than what we are used to today. Imagine if I had a digital camera like the one I have now, back then. I would have so many more thousands of images...

                Oh just look at these! I love to see the locals seeing your ship, and for a moment, wonderfully, it reminded me of the Greelanders come to see Fram, for there is much of the same curiosity and delight. And then I loved the Asian-ness of these people, their natural grace crouched in the prow of the boat or a foot controlling an oar.
                And then that last image dear pakarang is surely right up there with your “specials” of later years – the older photo technology matters not when your natural talent and way of seeing the world shine through it.

                  Oh Bali, I was there also in 1999. It was my first trip outside Europe ... I don't have any more photos. No digital camera at the time, and I don't have the prints anymore I remember having attended a "cremation", which was something that started to change my way of seeing things when back home. How could we be so different in the way of managing such an event of "life" ? (because death is really considered like another event of life there ...)

                    Text in German, but I think the pictures speaks for themselves.
                    Tourism was well established in Ubud by the look of it.

                    My first visit was in 1967. I don't have own pictures from then, but here is a video from Bali in those days: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDkP5TVmmB8.

                    This isn't even the most crowded beaches around Kuta, Seminyak and Nusa Dua.
