Photographer's Note

This is the first in a series of pictures from India - with no camera on this trip (because of the amount of video equipment required to make a film with the Indian organisation VPSS) I had to resort to the picture button on a small S-VHS Panasonic camera. The quality off screen is quite appalling but I really like the compositions and I think they show interesting elements of Gujarati life in line with TE. Forgive me if I post this first paragraph with each picture but I don't want to field lots of picture quality responses unless anyone has suggestions how I can improve them further.


MAKASANKRANTI

Kids in the south Gujarat town of Valod prepare glass impregnated string for the winter festival of Makasankranti. All over the state kids and adults take to the streets and the rooftops to fight their kites across the skies - I got really good at making the kites but flying them against this lot.........!
