There’s certainly no reason to take a break from Yellowstone, save for the fact that I’m trying to make more room on the hard drive. I’ve got a few more photos to share from Kathmandu and Nepal and then I’ll continue with the amazing place I’ve been given to live for the season. These images were all made in Kathmandu, just a few days before the big earthquake. The men sitting against the red brick wall were in Bhaktapur, one of the plazas that suffered significant damage. These are among the last images made before the changes were to come. I hope they’ll give a glimpse into the daily life of the people living in the Kathmandu Valley.
I was lucky to see the place before the earthquake too. The culture there is rich! And more so, the people are quite friendly.
Fortunately much of the city was spared, it was more the remote villages that were hit so hard. And yes, it is a very rich culture.
On a different note, if you love adventure, check out Zip-lining and also Bungee jumping by the Last Resort. Lovely experiences.
Yeah, I like other types of adventure better, the more authentic ones that I create. But that’s a story for another time….
That’s where I did Bungee and tandem swing. Heard that the resort is closed till September due to earthquake damages.
Yeah, it’s going to take some time for things to return to normal…
It’s a crazy experience! I’m sure you’ll agree!
Yes, I’ve heard. You tried the zip-lining?
No, I didn’t. I liked tandem swing a tad bit more than bungee😀 Wanted to do rafting, but there weren’t enough people for that.
every picture has a story to tell. Thanks for sharing 🙂
That’s about the nicest compliment possible, thanks!
Your shots of Kathmandu are definitely interesting (& good). I really like your “down to earth” approach.
thanks, I definitely like showing the real day to day life
It makes me want to go there. Street photography in that part of the world is so fun. You are surrounded by interesting things!
I absolutely love it, just the way that life is lived out in the open. It definitely makes the photographic life more interesting!
It’s heartbreaking! And what adds pain to that is, Nepal was my honeymoon location.
Fine place for a honeymoon trek
The first photo is such an amazing catch. Wonderful, as always Russ.
That one was all about the timing, thanks!
Such a fan! Only just recently started looking for other blogs to follow, and this was such a find! Love the photography man! I’ve been aspiring to take more photojournalistic photos as well!
I enjoyed your Instagram thread. I’m looking forward to seeing the images you make in Myanmar!
