Nepal2011: Men in Photos

May 2011
I was told that most Nepalese people are shy and don’t want their pictures taken. I have full respect for their wishes, and never took pictures without their permission. 

Men were most difficult to photograph.  They didn’t ‘volunteer’ for a photograph, but often showed pride in their work, and would allow a photograph in that context. 

I think they appreciated our recognition of their strength, and the lame but sincere efforts to speak to them in their own language.

Trekking to Everest Base Camp was on my ‘bucket list’ for decades.

Cancer & Colostomy motivated me to
Just do it !
