The wood room is a place on the terrace where Ashwin’s Tata (grandfather) keeps his building materials and some treasures. It seems he is always pulling some beautiful old piece out of a corner or cabinet. The following shows a part of the world within the woodshed walls. I am channeling my friend and colleague, Chris Conniff O’Shea, who always has such a sophisticated eye for grouping beautiful and interesting things. The monochromatic selection is quite the opposite of the previous posting of my brightly colored book. I also felt if I didn’t record these photos, they would soon go away. They are in a moldy and decaying stack on a shelf. Venkatesh wants to save them and have them restored, but they may be beyond that already. Enjoy!
