Currently in a black and white kind of mood. Gonna upload some leftover shots of our winter trip to Burma in the coming week.  
Here, it was the tail end of day, almost sunset, and the light was giving it final burst before fading into twilight. Christen and I were dead tired from climbing all over the hills and temples for the day.. and we had just come down from a particularly intense trail where we had to dodge a lot of cattle, goat and human dung. Right as I was biking back to our lodging, I saw this kid drawing water from a makeshift well - how many trips where she carried this metal pot I’m not sure.  Her energy put us to shame.
I snapped a couple of quick shots and prayed that the aperture was all right.

This photograph, part of Shadi Ghadirian’s “Qajar” series, shows a young woman posing with an object banned under the Iranian Revolution. It’s one work out of many which will be shown at an exhibit at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts that features the work of 12 women photographers from the Middle East. There’s a lot to learn here.

An image is worth a chapter.
