Photographer's Note

I am the first to agree that this is absolutely not a perfect photo. Unfortunately I had no time to move the chairs that spoil the foreground.

This is the local temple elephant in the area near the hotel where I was staying in Madurai, Tamil Nadu state, for a few days in 1988. After lunch had been served to the ordinary guests, the elephant was brought into the courtyard of the hotel to eat the leftovers. It seemed satisfied to be served only rice, stuffed deep into its mouth by one of the hotel servants.

Maybe an alternative title for this photo could have been "Deep throat".

Scanned from a Kodachrome slide.
