Photographer's Note

I have left the Middle East in 1995 and steered my time machine closer to home but several more years back.

In early June 1980 I made a short journey to England during a gap between studies and a new job. I wanted to combine pleasure with work, first making an interview with a writer whose books I liked and then do some sightseeing. Since he was living in a village in the southwest of the country I decided to spend the rest of the journey mainly in Cornwall, where I had not been before.

After the interview I spent a night and a few hours early next day in Exeter before catching a train to Cornwall. I saw the Gothic cathedral where I took a few not very interesting photos, which I didn't bother to scan. Outside the cathedral I saw these children and teachers on an excursion taking a break by the statue of the 16th century theologian Richard Hooker.

As you may have guessed this photo was scanned from a Kodachrome slide. Here is a larger version.
