Photographer's Note

My last post showed three photos from the early 13th century Meenakshi Temple in Madurai, southern India. Here are three more.

Most of this interesting temple is covered with roofs and rather dark. Today's main photo is from one of the small areas that had a reasonably good light. I can't say much about it. It shows a Hindu priest, or maybe an assistant, doing some maintenance work on one of the many brightly painted deities found in niches like this all over the place.

The dark interiors were the most exciting parts for me, although the lack of light made it difficult to take photos. I took a few, hand held and with long exposures, and show two of them in the WS even though they are technically inferior.

These photos from 1988 were all scanned from Kodachrome slides.
