Thank you, Helen, for your kind and encouraging remarks yet again.

I was a bit worried about posting this one and Peter (graffer) remarked that it might be just a matter of time before the moderators remove it. But I thought it was of considerable interest - they have some very (to our minds) strange customs in Madagascar when it comes to celebrating death.

Unfortunately (and I kick myself each time I think about it) I took some very cheap and poor-quality film with me on that trip to Madagascar in 2001 and all the pictures turned out very grainy and horrible, so the image quality is not good. It certainly wasn't the fault of my beloved Olympus OM1N which has been a faithful friend for many years. The pictures I took in Greenland as a student in 1970 on Kodachrome with a poorer camera were very much better - I've put a few of those on TE.

I agree entirely with you, Helen. I find that I have learned a terrific amount on these sites - not just about photography, but also about the World and its people. Often notes are more interesting than their photographs. I also find I learn quite a lot when I'm composing notes to add to my own pictures. Also, I will rarely comment on a picture that doesn't have at least some sort of note.

Anyway, Helen, thank you for looking and for your kind remarks. Thank you once again for your hard work in putting up this challenge for us every week. When on Earth do you have any time for work and your family?

Kindest Regards,

John.
Madagascar
