Woman on glass plate.
The way I cropped it makes it look like a photo, but it’s actually a window pane. I shot this in the Lummis House. Since Charles Lummis spent a lot of time documenting and trying to save the cultural heritage of the local tribes, I’d assume this woman was Tongva or one of the Pueblo Indians. Of course, Lummis spent so much time in South America and New Mexico that this photo, if shot by him, could’ve been taken anywhere.
When it’s not such a busy day, I’ll go back and find out more.
Unsafe Journey. A woman is riding between the railway carriages of a local train heading north from Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. Her luggage is tucked under the carriage in front of her. It is the month of Ramadan, a fast which culminates in Eid-ul-Fitr, a three-day celebration. Tens of thousands of people leave the city to go to their home village and celebrate with their families. Trains are packed and many who fail to get tickets before they sell out or can’t afford buying them at the black market ride on the roof of the train or, like this woman, finds a quiet spot between the carriages.
