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!
and maybe she just enjoyed the moment?
Yes, it's interesting to double guess what others are thinking. :)
interesting good post
Thanks, Damon. You've a cool site too. I LOVE movies. Can't wait for the new Spidey film myself. :)
She's lovely! Wish you had talked to her...
That actually crossed my mind, but I got the impression that she didn't want to be disturbed. So I just watched. :)
