This is one of those Images that photographers dream about!
I had taken a bus along very bumpy, windy, narrow dirt roads to the somewhat remote Village of Chajul (pronounced Cha-hul, sounds like Kabul) in the Northern Highlands of Guatemala. The village was so small that they had no "Hospedaje", or Hotel/Hostel, where visitors could spend the night, so the Priest let me sleep on a concrete pew in the ramshackle Missionary Church. I left to go back to the small store where the bus had left me off for some food and as I rounded a corner and looked up the dirt road to the Mountains, I saw this group of women. They were walking hand in hand, all in their traditional clothing, seeming on a wondrous colorful journey away from the Village and into the mist.

Title: Hand In Hand
Image Size: 9" x 13 1/2"
Paper Size: 11" x 14"
{The FULL Image can be seen in the last Thumbnail photo above}

**Camera and Film: This photo was taken with a Nikon FE 35ml camera using Kodak Professional KODACHROME 64 Slide Film.

**Printing and Paper: This Image was printed in a Professional Darkroom using Cibachrome Transfer, here's what it's all about:

Cibachrome is a dye destruction positive-to-positive photographic process used for the reproduction of slides on photographic paper. The prints are made on a dimensionally stable polyester base, essentially a plastic base opposed to traditional paper base. Since it uses azo dyes on a polyester base, the print will not fade, discolor, or deteriorate. Characteristics of Cibachrome prints are image clarity, color purity, as well as being an archival process able to produce critical accuracy to the original slide. The company was purchased in the late 1980's and the process (and resulting print) is now referred to as Ilfochrome, but I'm stuck in the old ways and still refer to all my slide prints as "Ciba's".!

Also, Cibacromes are so intense!! They look like their surface is made of glass, it is that "shiny" and my prints show considerably more detail than most computer monitors which usually don't accurately capture the color or contrast of the original photograph/Cibachrome. The LAST thumbnail photo shows the entire picture!

**Signed and Dated: Yes! And Titled, on the back of the Cibachrome.

Thank You for stopping in and looking!
Peace and smiles....Kristin
