My response had nothing to do with exotic or not.  And "far away" has 
absolutely nothing to do with it.  It was just my observation that 
the people in your photographs seemed more relaxed and less obviously 
aware of the camera after #81.  That's just my opinion.  It's not a 
criticism.  All of your photos will be wonderfully received by the 
family.  I just prefer the later photos and that's 1/4 of the 
photos!  You turned my comments on your work into a criticism that I 
did not intend.  I don't see anything in my comments that implies 
that local photographs are not interesting or fascinating.  I just 
sympathized with the fact that you had 18 family members to work with 
and satisfy.  That's what I don't envy.
