Photographer's Note

This is my second re-post of a photo from Bhutan in 2003, which I originally had scanned so badly that I needed to erase it from my archive.

You can see the horrible Original Version by clicking in the box to the right.

Here is the original note from 2007:

"I met this woman on a street in Jakar town in central Bhutan. It was a brief encounter, no time to move her away from the strong sunshine or to find a better background. Judging from her clothes she probably belongs to an ethnic minority group, maybe the Bumthap which is a small group in this area.

Scanned from a Kodachrome slide."

To which I can add that according to my diary she posed "happily". I was glad to be reminded that I hadn't put her in an awkward situation, or that she felt obliged to do what the foreigner asked her.
