The Saffron Harvest


This was inspired by the saffron harvesters of Kashmir. While growing up my father repeatedly told me stories of magnificent crocus fields he had seen as a child. I'm packing for India in a few days, I can hardly wait. I lived there in early childhood & haven't returned since. I'll be sure to take some holga shots of india just for you!
