Apricots ripening on our south facing kitchen garden wall grabbed my imagination, my inquisitive nature took over as I just had to discover how Apricots are grown, harvested and dried elsewhere. This great photographic journey helped me kick start my research, leaving me with a desire to find out even more. re-blogged so you can share my interest and join me on my voyage of discovery
I had the opportunity to work with LEHO a non-profit based in Leh documenting the Apricot Harvest and the building of various structures for drying apricots in the summer and growing vegetables in the winter. Takmachik is a beautiful village along the Indus river about 5 hours from Leh via local bus.
