Photographer's Note

In many of the temples in Tamil Nadu you will find a resident elephant. The elephant will bless the pilgrims by touching them on the head with their trunk, for a small donation. This certainly isn't a tourist attraction, (there are virtually no tourists in this region) they are there for the temple goers and pilgrims. Even so I had double feelings about this. An elephant revered in Hindu myths, (Ganesh the elephant headed god) but maybe not treated so kindly in reality. Despite not being sure of my feelings, the elephant looked well treated , the mahout seemed a kind man and I found the scene quite photogenic.
