Gods and Demons of Kathmandu

The streets of Kathmandu are filled with the sacred and profane colliding at every turn. I arrived on Monday, exhausted after 3 long days of travel and was immediately swept up (and overwhelmed) by the chaos here. These are my first photographs, taken with a 35mm rangefinder film camera (an expensive habit that could easily get addictive!)

wow sheila! i love the first, second, and last shots here. it's so great that you've just jumped into this. i can't wait to see more.

oh, and this post makes me appreciate this blogging thing even more - that we are able to see, so quickly, and in such a raw way - places that are SO far away otherwise. very cool... look, blogging is good for the environment! ;)
