My thoughts of Kathmandu:
This is my first visit to this Himalayan Kingdom and with guys I hardly knew. All turned out really well, I must say. An incredible bunch of fun loving and easy going dudes from RFSG. Kathmandu’s street is truly a case of F8 and be there. One of my initial thoughts was black and white medium seems such a waste here as the abundance of colour is part of the Nepali culture. As the film develops, I begin to favour it more than the coloured pictures.

Nepal is a dream place for many to visit. It is considered as an exotic destination to many but few make it there to actually see it for themselves.
This himalayan country is rich in culture. It’s people are the friendliest of the lot of all the places that I’ve travelled to. A lot of on-going take place in the street any time of the day. Its probably one of the liveliest streets I’ve shot.
Being in Nepal was like trapped in a medieval country. Nothing much has changed, the architecture, the culture, the people etc. I shot a total of 30 over rolls in the span of 2 weeks there.
It was the best trip I had in 2011. Looking forward to the next big trip, Mongolia in 2012.
