In a hotel room in Kathmandu at five o’clock in the morning I was wide awake. Not knowing what to do to pass the time I sat at the end of my bed and removed my camera from its case. From the corner of my room pockets of light were peaking through the curtins illuminating the bedside table. It lured me towards it. Now, with curtains drawn, I sat on the window ledge and absorbed the morning image of Kathmandu. The sun was beginning to rise as the last trace of night remained as long as it could. Domestic lights were still required and they lit the rooftops like candles in a room. I wanted to capture this scene not only as I saw it but as I experienced it……….
Twenty seconds later the moment was captured.
This image is titled “Namaste”- welcome in Nepali.
