Zooming In On: KATHMANDU

Getting to know you.

Dear readers, I generally enjoy taking ‘people’ photos; even more so when traveling. For me, the human element adds that extra umph to the places I visit, giving it a personal touch to the otherwise traditional (and sometimes boring) ‘postcard shots’ of famous landmarks. I try to photograph a variety of people, as you can see, preferably in candid and ‘natural’ poses. Occasionally I’d approach the person to ask for permission before taking the shots. Some are quite obliging. Others are, shall I say, camera-shy!

I hope you enjoy the collage. I’ve also written a brief note on Nepal here.

Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    Just for the record, Kathmandu (and Nepal for that matter) has always been in my bucket list. Always dream of travelling here. Once, I even thought of getting acquaintance with a Nepalese guy working at a supermarket near my house so that when I travel there, I will have a contact. Haha

    The only things that make my plan still a plan is the flight ticket price. And the fact that I am yet to finish my goal of visiting all 10 ASEAN countries before going elsewhere.

    Nice photos kak! You really captured the soul inside them! 🙂

      Save the best for last, I’d say. Bila dah habis tour asean, then pergi nepal.
      I met this one shopkeeper in kathmandu and he speaks malay macam orang melayu! 3 years in JB katanya. I was so impressed I ended buying something I didnt want. Hahaha! Anyway, im glad u liked the pix. Thanks Khai!
