December - India. Aundh,
Maharashtra state. After almost two months in the village I had made good friends
and tried a few 'portraits'. This picture taken close to the home of the blacksmith
is without a name. In 1961 it became the image for the 'General Report' prepared
by our University Expedition team as we felt it conveyed the depth of the exceptional
bond we had forged.
Camera MPP Microflex Twin Lens Reflex with F3.5 77.5mm Taylor Taylor Hobson lens.
Film Kodak Verichrome Pan at F4 - 1/125 second. Developed by hand in Aundh using
May and Baker Promicrol at normal dilution with water from the village well.
