    Awais, as always a wonderful series. I never tire of your shared glimpses of the fascinating people and places I may never get to visit. Of this series I especially like the portraits #2 & #10 and in #4 the way the light spills on the two girls checking out the smartphone. I'm also fond of #9 - after all of the closeups, it's nice to see an overview.

    I love your photos Awais! My favorites of this set are #1 (I think because of the dog sitting with the person I assume is his owner) and #5.

    A lot of souvenirs. I traveled in Nepal 3 months in 1983 and 3 months in 1985... :)

    I'm more a fan of the direct portraits like 2, 8 and 10. You captured the story in the their faces very well.

    The one who takes a joke only for a joke and seriousness only seriously he and she have got both badly. Grook by Piet Hein in my poor translation.

    Yes, I guess. Some tourists and just after the boom of the hippies era. Many of these were still in Nepal in 1983 (Thamel in Kathmandu and Pokkhara).

    Dear Awais

    Some amazing portraits, you really have captured the souls of the men in photos 2, 8 and 10. I also love the atmosphere of photos 4 and 5.

    Very nice as usual, lots of color. I really like the sun just peaking out of the tree branches and the ladies face illuminated by the fire.
