Photographer's Note

Ok.. first of all I hesitated between this one and the BW in the WS. So I would REALLY appreciate if you let me know which one you prefer....

****************************************************
This girl was below a bridge which crosses Ganges from one side of Rishikesh to other (I forgot the name of the Bridge). The passer bys throw coins into the river probably after making a wish. Now let me explain it to you about the 'Coin throwing syndrome'.

In many places in Asia when you see a pond with a fish you will also see a lot coins in it! I believe that people must believe that their wish may come true by throwing coin into a 'fishy' pond!! I never tried it!
So back to the photo, here some people threw coins some others some food for the fish below. As you can imagine this girl with couple of other kids was interested in the coins that were falling from the the bridge...
By the way the water wasn't really that warm during this time of the year.

ps & tech.
Scan from photo and just increased contrast and brightness by about 50.
Have included the bridge in the WS so you can see the hight and the environment.
