Cycling on narrow lanes was really exciting and also thrilling for me. Number of pits on the way made the journey more interesting. Also, we could have fallen down the hill if we were to get off the route. Our luck and our ability to cycle was good in that case. We took short rest at Charghara. Beautiful view down the hill helped us recover our strength faster. We were really hungry by that time and were looking for a place where we could refill our empty stomach.
Shades of yellow and green pave the way as I walk through the village of Khokana. It is a world of its own, sustaining lives of everyday hardworking Nepalese that reside there. The picture depicts a moment I had a chance of capturing, of a life I had the privilege of experiencing. It is a place no less amazing than anywhere I have ever been, a life no less awe inspiring than any I have ever known. Sun shone in midday as I took this picture, trying to captures the simple beauty of the place. Like the lady in the picture, I moved on thereafter; it was just another day in Khokana.
Yet another hiking from Deerwalk (excited for sure) and we all knew for sure that there was something about this hike as we had Shutterbug (AKA Jitendra Bajracharya) with us on the hike. Khokana, a traditional and tiny Newari village eight kilometers south of Kathmandu (on the outskirts of Patan), which has its own history and has retained its tradition and culture.This village was not far from Kathmandu but surely had lots for the photographers.
Materializing (and actually resuming) a long awaited photo hunting series, we had a photo trip to Khokana last weekend. Trying to limit ourselves in a particular theme of Crafts and also on color (no colors actually), we took these shots.
