Photographer's Note

After three photos from a tour by boat in Kerala in southern India I jump across the country to the Ladakh region of Jammu & Kashmir state in the remote north.

This photo is almost 30 years old, so it is possible that this very typical Ladakhi hat has gone out of fashion since then, since in 1985 I mainly saw it worn by slightly older women. I hope not, because the saleswomen wearing this kind of hat certainly adorned the streets of Leh, the main city, and created many tempting photo opportunities.

As usual I have scanned this from a Kodachrome slide. You can see a larger version here.
