December - India. Amritsar,
on a street side stall preparing jalebi, a traditional sweet. It is made
from wheat flour batter and fried in ghee, clarified butter. Once cool
the spirals of dough are soaked in syrup. I have to admit the jalebi became
my favourite sweet.
Camera Leica lll F with a collapsible Leitz f 5 cm 1:3.5 lens. Film Kodak Tri
X Pan at F5.6 - 1/100 second. The camera was on loan and 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 Koregaon using May and Baker Promicrol at normal dilution with water
from the village well.
