Photographer's Note

The alternative title is of course “Lady in Red”! Sorry, I had to say it… ;-)

I’ve already written about the sensory overload one experiences when travelling in Nepal. I have also described the omnipresent traditions woven into the fabric of the everyday life.

I sometimes wonder, what I miss the most about that little Himalayan country. First of all – my friends, the camaraderie of my second trip through the partly-destroyed Kathmandu Valley, the warm welcome, the Everest beer, the amazing photo opportunities, even lugging my rucksack and photo equipment (no hired Sherpa on that trek!) through the mountain paths around Nagarkot…

But I also can’t forget the morning rituals I watched every day in the streets of Nepali towns and cities: the smell of incense, the sound of temple bells, the colour of pink powder sprinkled around all the shrines, the whirlwind of pigeons rushing to get fed and all the ladies in red carrying little bowls of offerings from one tiny temple to another.

That’s one thing that did not change after the earthquake.

In WS, a couple of street shots from both trips.
