I’ve really enjoyed taking photographs this month…Nepal is a country with beautiful land and beautiful people. The Nepalese spend a lot of time outdoors, and in this part of the world it’s not impolite to stare (who knew!?) which means it’s easy to get a lot of great portraits! Here are a few moments I captured of work, school, and play in Nepal.
Nepal: a land of yellows, pinks, and greens
Here, a Nepalese man stops to rest amidst the busyness of the market
Cows are a sacred animal in Nepal (you can’t even buy beef at markets or order it in restaurants!) Here, two young children pose beside their prized possessions. Just a moment later, this young boy hid behind the cow.
After spending three months in Africa, where women and men’s roles are clearly defined, it was refreshing to see men help with cooking and cleaning in Nepal. Below, a man shucks corn while his wife stands to the side.
A young woman stops to catch her breath on her way to a village on the top of the mountainside
A young boy sells oranges in the city center (which are super delicious, by the way!)
The Nepalese greet by folding their hands together and say, “Namaste” which means “The light in me bows to the light in you.”
Life in Nepal: Simple and Beautiful.
