There are just a few people pictures in Jimmy D’s collection.

This appears to be the group he traveled with and some sort of ritual, perhaps. Read More

Jim took many postcard shots like this.

Jimmy rides a water buffalo!

Is that steam, smoke, or both?

First (spectacular) look at Kanchenjunga.

First (spectacular) look at Kanchenjunga. This view appears to be from the south – I’m guessing somewhere north of Darjeeling. (I told you that these will come in no particular order. Unfortunately, the slides themselves are in no order either, so I’m just posting them as I scan ’em.) Read More

Rocky river at the bottom of the valley.

Now we’re getting into the 35mm slides. Scan quality will not quite compare to the previous images, but the portability of the small auto-focus 35mm camera enabled Jim to capture many very nice shots. Much more to come! Read More

A bonus shot from Jimmy D!

One of the rolls of 120 film was shot in Wisconsin. Can anyone guess where this is? Read More

Jim also took interest in the color and details around him.

Jimmy liked to shoot the light.

Jimmy liked to shoot the light. It’s difficult to do, but with modern tools, it’s possible to get an image that resembles what the eye sees. Read More

John’s Main Event (Where else?)

March 18, 2003. Read More

I’m not sure if the stone has any significance beyond being part of a nice composition.

This is almost certainly Kathok Lake, or “Holy Lake”, also in Yuksom, India.

This shot contains an excellent clue as to Jim’s location.

The sign says, “Forest Rest House, Yuksam No.1”. This puts him in this area. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuksom. I’m pretty sure that he must have done one of these treks, shown on the same Wikipedia page. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuksom#/media/File:Map_Goecha_La_Trek.JPG Read More

I wish I knew where Jimmy shot this.

It’s a breathtaking view. I also wish more of his images were medium format transparencies like this one. The 35mm slides I’m scanning really pale by comparison… Read More

Another nice shot with flags.

Jimmy D took a lot of photos of prayer flags.

I like this one a lot. Read More
