As I dig through my image library from last year, it's interesting to me how images that I once didn't think much of suddenly intrigue me. I'm finding that with a little time and space, certain images have new life, and a certain appeal that I didn't see before.
During my time in India this year, I had the opportunity to visit a small community called Padhar, which has a rather impressive hospital, especially for it's size. The hospital is well known for providing high quality care within the region, and the doctor that founded it, the head surgeon for years, while now retired, still lives in the community.
While touring the facility, I stumbled across a man tucked away in a dusty workshop, making lenses for eyeglasses. Intrigued, I stopped to make a few photographs. I'm not really sure how lenses are made in the west, but my assumption is that it's not like this.
