It may not have the lustrous textures of
Rembrandt's 'Woman with a Pink', but my
'Lady in Pink' is a whole world away from
17th century Holland, although a 17th
century viewer would probably recognise
her mode of transport. The calm of the
Kerala backwaters is one of the delights of
the State (being a 'dry' state is not another
one). This woman being taxied by a fellow
in a dugout canoe was spotted at extreme
telephoto range from a tourboat on these famous backwaters. The juxtaposition of
colours couldn't have been more fortunate - almost as if she were employed by the State
Tourist Office as a peripatetic pink to offset the ubiquitous green for people like me.
Other implications of this shot aren't quite so appealing: 'backward' villages, wooden
dugouts, serfdom? Or is it just a simple water taxi, the man happy to earn his living like
this? Being India, of course, it could be that his caste only allows him to work this way.
Saw my first water snake here, swimming gaily past the boat, head held high. Later that
day my Fuji digital camera packed up. Possibly something to do with the heat, but I don't
think getting caught in a tropical downpour helped much.
