Marina Beach in Red Scale

I recently returned from a trip to Chennai, in India, where I visited family and friends. Whenever I visit, I try to go to Marina Beach for some street (or is it beach?) photography. I enjoy shooting film when I’m not working an assignment, and this time I decided to red scale a role of color negative film, and walk the beach with my rangefinder.

I just finished reporting a story about the shortage of climbers in Kerala’s coconut industry. The state government is sponsoring a competition to invent a mechanical coconut picker that will solve the labor crisis. A radio version of the story will air on The World, a show co-produced by Public Radio International, WGBH in Boston, and the BBC World Service. I want to write a print piece as well. Know any newspaper or magazine that might be interested? I plan on returning to Kerala to produce a documentary on the subject soon.

UPDATE: The story aired March 3rd, 2010 on The World.
