John Tauro, whose travelogue photo coverage, hosted by Bellevision, I have tracked for the past few years and commented on, has matured by the years, as vintage wine, and the progressive improvement sets new standards of excellence. Apart from his visual coverage taking a northward curve, even his descriptive word coverage is now crisp, focussed and highly readable. His top of the world Swiss mountain experience at 3571 m. brings his selective coverage to one’s computer screen and satiates the travel aspirations of the likes of me whose age and bank balance would deprive the pleasure of on-site enjoyment and enlightenment. One of your reader responses is apt: “Without Visa, air ticket and without spending anything, I went, visited and enjoyed many of the unique places of Switzerland”. There is a method in Tauro’s photography and also in Bellevision’s editorial selection of his massive coverage. One thing alert readers will observe that there are more parked cars and cows (and bulls?) in his published frames than local men and dames. For Indian’s jostled in public spaces, the Swiss trip could have been a great bonus. I liked the photo of two cottages, well connected by road and
