Photographer's Note

Old prayer wheels. Hemis-Shukpachu, Ladakh.

This was taken a little further along the same wall of prayer wheels as the ones shown in this shot that I posted a while ago, although these ones weren't in quite the same state of disrepair.
What doesn't come across here are the wonderful faded colours - dark red and gold against the textures of the wood and stone. On the other hand I like how the absence of colour allows these textures to shine through, with no distractions.
I didn't colour tone this shot, it's just how it came out of the scanner. I rather liked the subtle colouration so I left it as it was.
