Mingalaba

Aleš made such a difficult challenge for this month that not many shots were submitted. You may remember that the challenge was for 35mm using a panning method.

I have absolutely no good panning shots so instead I will tell a funny story.

In the first image below are friends of Tina and I who come to visit us when they can. Normally, with other friends we exchange stories like how we went hiking around here, swimming down in Croatia or maybe shopping in Ljubljana.

With Goran (not his real name, for taxation reasons) we first exchange greetings in Burmese. That is, Mingalaba! After some chit-chat I would ask “So, how was your weekend?”. Goran would casually say something like “Oh, I delivered an Airbus A380 to some Malaysian Airline”. And when he says “Natalie (also not her real name) and the kids flew with me from Seoul to Siem Reap (Cambodia)”, he means that he – the pilot, actually did the flying.

Anyways, I tried to “pan” the kids on the horses but I don’t think they are the standard that Aleš was after.

October is my turn again and to make things easy for everyone I have chosen 24mm landscapes.
