I was in Pokhara, a sleepy town near the Indian-Nepali border when I caught this boat lady lost in her own thoughts. Pokhara is a gateway to the base camps of Everest but sometimes you feel so isolated from the rest of the world here. It has this end-of-the-world atmosphere that makes it so special. I must have stared at this lady for 15 minutes before I saw movement. The heavenly Phewa Lake provided the backdrop to this scene. What could she be thinking? A child who needed feeding? The laundry left at the clothesline? The sari she wanted to buy from a shop she earlier visited? Those pesky tourists who steal photos when she's most vulnerable?
This is the Eye in the Sky!
