I came home from Western Nepal last fall with more than 900 photos. It took awhile, but I finally pared that collection down to 22 for this website. The girl you see below is about 6 years old and was one of the many beautiful children to hang around while we organized our logistics in the village of Chainpur, at the foot of the Saipal Himal in early October. I had never seen a kid with more naturally mesmerizing eyes.
To view all photos in the gallery, mouse over the "Photography" header at the top of this site, then click on "Western Nepal" below it. As with the "General" gallery, you can view a high-resolution version of each photo by clicking the "Hi-Res" link below the picture.
