The child within

May 30, 2011 – There’s something in this moment I was so lucky to capture, that speaks to the inner child. You should have seen playful adults chasing pigeons with the same enthusiasm, caught in their own time bubbles impervious to the outside world. It didn’t take long for me to join the club. I must have spent close […]

A lucky find

May 29, 2011 – There’s not much to say about this. We saw what the guide was recommending and then got lost on some streets.. just to stumble upon one of the nicest temples in Patan. The sky was perfect, so an HDR seemed appropriate.

A WiFi, a bartender and a lizard

May 27, 2011 – This is a lizard I noticed and chased for 10 minutes while Andra was herself chasing after a free Wi-Fi. This nice shot probably wouldn’t have existed if there wasn’t for a bartender who offered a great tip that made me change my approach. Instead of chasing after the creature, he suggested going in front of it’s path […]

Chicken transport

May 26, 2011 – Chickens are transported between the village’s little taverns or modest restaurants, with the legs strapped on the motorcycle’s crash cage or a bicycle’s handlebars.

Rhino in Chitwan National Park

May 25, 2011 – “Just so there’s no confusion here, when I say tactical retreats I mean it was more like this: we stood our ground to impress the rhino so that he wouldn’t attack. But, each time he moved a few steps in our direction we chickened out and run for cover :D” (from […]

Where: Nepal – Suraha ( Time: canoeing & trekking: 7:00 am – 10:00 am; sleeping in the jungle: 18:00 PM – 6:30 AM. Price: 2000Rs (~ 30$) per person, including the park’s entry permit. When the alarm rang at 05:55 AM we thought that waking up so early was probably the hardest thing we’ll do today. […]

Mother duck and ducklings

May 24, 2011 – A quick shot I took in the Sauraha village, while returning from the jungle observation tower where we slept the night before. Back to “Photo of the day”

From India to Nepal: a strike, a monsoon and surreal landscape

Leaving India proved a bit more difficult than we anticipated. Not so much in terms of complications and annoyances, but the length of the trip and the number of connections were definitely higher than our initial estimation. Overall, it took us around 40 hours to reach the first destination in Nepal: Sauraha. The beginning of […]
