Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

WC_DSC0516

For this week’s Photo Challenge, I have chosen this photo I took whilst traveling Laos. It is the perfect photo not only because of the contrast of light and dark but also what I was feeling. It was really hot and humid when I took the trip and the coolness of the shade was very refreshing. And when I look at this photo, all I can think of is – Keep Calm and Travel On.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life

For this week’s Street Life I have chosen Freak St. in Kathmandu. Welcome to Freak Street aka Jhochhen Tole got its name during the hippie trail in the 60s and 70s. This is an alternative place to stay when you don’t want the crazy touristy places in Thamel. You get a glimpse of the local life early in the morning and it is close to Kathmandu Durbar Square. This shot was taken while I was standing in the middle of the street – talking about Freaky experience and a car coming your way. Looks like a scene from Twilight, eh?

Photo of the Day: Patan Daily Life

While exploring the durbar square, these two gentlemen caught my attention. They were sitting down next to the lion guarding the museum. They sat there for a long time, chatting and people watching. When I grow old, I wish I could hang out in a place as cool as this and watch the world go by.
