“Kids, Kids, Kids…”

Kids play…that’s what they do.

In every city, in every country, on every continent of the world…if there are kids, they’ll play.

With toys, with sticks, with pets, with empty bottles, with themselves in their own imagination…they’ll play.

Why did we become adults again…..?!

“The Woman At Swayanabath…”

There is an area at the top of a hill in Kathmandu, Nepal called Swayanabath. It goes by a second name, Monkey Temple…aptly named, as there are monkeys roaming around freely amongst the locals and tourists. While on assignment there I met a woman.

She just stared and stared and stared at me and my Canon, watching me shoot.

After I while she began chatting in her tongue, so I listened.

She then pointed at the area around her; temples, shrines, souvenirs, the people, the monkeys. I looked as she pointed, not understanding her words but getting a visual grip on what it was she was showing me.

She giggled, I smiled.

She became quiet…I took a picture.
