Photographer's Note

In the Minjar festival in Chamba, (over 1000 years old), there are a lot of guns. Here the ancient retaining wall is at least 3 stories high. The 6 temples on the top, date from 3rd century onwards. The parade with Gods and Goddesses on palaquins marches down this very narrow street, up and down the steep winding streets to the river, where the Goddess is bathed. I took this picture with 35 mm film, my trusty old pentax. I was hiding inside my hotel. I was too terrified to step into the street and get better pictures. The police smashed my digital Olympus camera and beat me the day before ("sorry, it was a mistake" was the final word), as I sat in a grassy field. The film was very poorly developed in Delhi, they then scanned from prints, (instead of the negatives as promised) and scratched. I know little about photoshop. I applied image for more color, contrast, then sharpened.
