Aymara woman sitting on the steps of the Catedral Basilica
Menor de Nuestra Senora de la Paz (Metropolitan Cathedral
of La Paz). The Cathedral was reconstructed in 1835 but
not completed until 1989. The Cross in the background bears
the inscription 'Pax', dates from 1957 and celebrates Peace.
Leica lll F with a collapsible Leitz f 5 cm 1:3.5 lens.
Film Plus X Pan at F5.6 - 1/100 second. My film was cut
from bulk rolls and loaded in a re-loadable leica cassette.
It was a convenient low cost way of carrying film but not
ideal. The film had to be loaded in the dark and static
electricity always attracted dust which shows on the negative.
Developed by hand in La Paz using May and Baker Promicrol
at normal dilution.
