14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Making Indigo Dye in Plaboo Village, Mahasarakam, Thailand

The photo is of a woman's hands as she is making indigo dye from an Indigo plant in order to use to dye clothing. As the dye oxidizes, it turns blue-as shown on her hands. She is a part of a non-profit organization that tie-dyes clothing made from organic cloth and colors.
