Default To tyro: old scan

Thank you John for your kind remarks and for adding this to tour favourites.
This is actually an old scan, made years ago but improved with PSE recently. I adjusted the terrible original colours and considered posting it that way. But I was still not quite satisfied. The colours now looked fairly dull. So I got the idea to give it a sepia tone, which of course was much better.
I have no particular memories of taking this photo, but I don't think I was nervous. Although it was a very conservative religious city, the atmosphere was calm and polite and I felt totally safe in every narrow alley. And that man probably never even saw me.
Kind regards,
Gert
