Energy Crisis

Here in Nepal there is a serious shortage of petrol and kerosene and people are spending ridiculous amounts of time queuing to receive a small fraction of the fuel that they need. In Patan, a "suburb" of Kathmandu, kerosene containers were tied together to hold people's place in line. The kerosene was being poured out of large barrels using a metal pitcher, while a woman kept track with pad of paper and pencil of what everyone got, and a man stood near collecting the money.

Inspiring...makes me want to apply to graduate school in photojournalism. The Canon 5D is nice...the pictures are sharp. A lot of good photographs especially of the fuel shortages. Helps to put everything into perspective back here in America.
