Drying Tea by Okinawa Soba, via Flickr. It's about 110 years old. A difficult lighting situation to say the least. He had no flash, but got the exposure just right, hitting on a nice balance using the available light coming through the windows and door. Not bad ! Notice the steam coming off the tea leaves being "dry stirred" on the stove. From a Sample Set of Classic Meiji and Taisho-era Japan Stereoview and Lantern-Slide images by Japanese Photographer T. ENAMI (1859-1929).
