Photographer's Note

This photo was taken in very low light (1.6 second shutter) in a Tibetan Monastery. The consequent colour gives a redish glow to the photo, but rather than change anything I have left it as it is, because it gives much more of the atmosphere of the place. A small hidden room that few visitors managed to find. Along the walls are bookcases filled with tibetan books (two thin sheets of wood protect individual pieces of paper or parchement that are bundled together and wrapped with red cloth. Red is a defintie predominant colour: not just the books, but also the columns, wall art work, and staue of Buddha in the foreground. The column to the left shows a ring of grime attexting to the fact that I was standing in a place which had existed for centuries, and no doubt looked then as it did now.
