    Beautiful shots Don. I really enjoy this series of shots and also others you have posted from Darjeeling. Looks like you had some great light during your visit.

    Thank you, Thomas. It is a great place with great light (it's a hill station, after all, so a little closer to the sun ).

    We really enjoy Darjeeling... I wouldn't be surprised if we return some day.

    Uh, no excuse, SIR!

    Well, I could come up with lots of excuses, but you wouldn't want to hear them. Thanks for the lovely comment... you've urged me onward.

    Good, the secret's safe... as Richard Franiec mentioned in another thread, nothing really equalled the Pro 1 until the DP1 and DP2 came along. Looking at all these, I'm beginning to wonder if I shouldn't put my G9 on the shelf and take down the Pro 1 again (besides the DP2, of course).

    Thanks for the nice comment... for that, I'll show you the other two I took of that girl... the last one is her and her grandmother walking down the path into their valley and home...

    They live right on the edge, must be a hard life.

    Cool pics though.

    Thank you, Jorgen... it was a toss-up for me as to the favourite. I finally chose the one where she was looking straight at me. But I always like hearing what other people like. They both turned out pretty well.

    Cheers,
    Don

    Yes, indeed, hard life... but I think one thing that photography is good for is documenting other people's lives. Even now I look at these and think how fortunate I am to have life so easy (said as I'm sitting in my air-conditioned home office on one of the hottest days of the year). As much as I like computers, if it came down to a choice between computers and air-conditioning, I'd have to give that a lot of thought.

    Cheers,
    Don
