Tajikistan, 1974

In 1974 I went to a physics meeting in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, then part of the Soviet Union. Most of the pictures I took there have been lost; I was lucky to find and salvage just a few.

For some was able to restore the colors, but not for all. This is why I did this gallery in monochrome; it also has more impact this way.

Technical Note: This is the first Gallery using my Flipper. Clicking on a thumbnail takes you, like before, to a full-screen image view, but now you can browse all images without going back to the Gallery page.
