More Photographs of Nepal

Some of my Nepal shots that I haven’t put up!

I still have a little bit left…will put it all up eventually!

The colour consistency of these 2 sets are slightly different….

3 photographs are more individual look that I prefer having a more desaturated look to it…

3 photographs I like to emphasize the colour richness of the robes…The one spraying the rice while doing the ceremony is kind of a big deal.. reincarnation of one of a lama
