I finally got the Nikon film developed from my trip to Varanasi!
When I held up the slide shots to the light, I was pleasantly surprised. The one shot I had the most hope for, a little Indian girl with bright blue eyes, didn’t turn out as I had hoped.
However other shots jumped out at me. A red tea stall. A snake charmer’s cobra, and a small dog suffering sleeping in the back streets.
I’m thinking of framing some of these. Especially the one of the dog. It’s an element which those who have gone to India would be hard pressed to miss, and with the picture India is never far from my mind.
After a busy week I’d like nothing better than a nice photo-walk, and this time I’ll be bringing the old family camera along with me. This is one of my first experiments with film since I was ten.
Truthfully I have no idea how well it holds up since I haven’t been in any place which could develop the film, but I know that I have some of my best potential shots on here.
It’s 7:am Himalaya time, and I’m going for a walk.
