Description

"Low level view of conference table in Priest's area at the big Catholic Church in (blank) Note legs are on a plank all around chairs must straddle" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Detail: Nara Wood Table. Calasiao church wardens gave Hill a tour of the pastoral living quarters and the old Spanish kitchen. He was fascinated by the carved legs of a nara wood table. 'Takes twenty men to carry it,' he wrote. A month later, still intrigued by the table -- the top so polished that it reflected light -- he hitchhiked back to Calasiao to take closeups: 'Light on the table comes from a north window so it is always good and constant. Made seven exposures with and without a red filter from four different positions." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
