Photographer's Note

This was one evening beside a village road lined with Sonajhuri (Golden Shower) trees beside an irrigation canal. He must have been returning to the small town on the highway some three miles away from whichever village he was visiting. I had seen him there on several evenings cycling down the road at more or less the same time. So I lay in wait, choosing the exact spot where I would place him in the frame.
The name of the village is irrelevant. It is near Siuri in Birbhum, a district of West Bengal.

This was taken with an Asahi Pentax K1000 fitted with a Super Takumar 18 mm. The film was Fujichrome 100. There was a red filter on it to enhance the sunset. I have turned it to B/W.
