Palm Patina

    The hand of a man who is coating kite-string with coloured paste embedded with glass. On the roadside near Dilli Diwarja. Have been stopping by these guys the last few days - really dedicated workers and highly productive.

      Amazing shot! Nice composition and so much interest. That is a hard-working hand.

      why is the paste embedded with glass??

      @avaDarlene : The line is coated with glass so that it becomes very sharp and abrasive (sp?) so that you can more easily cut your opponents kite out of the sky.
