Mount Everest is high. No. It’s the highest point on Earth and it is 29,029-feet high. Do you see what it really means? This is too high to easily recognize. So, Richard Johnson, Bonnie Berkowitz, and Lazaro Gamio provided a web page with a long graphical representation of this height. You can visit at Scaling…
Kathmandu, skilled craftsmen
In a Nepalese city, like Kathmandu, you quickly notice that the industry is small but very accessible, meaning that you can walk to the people involved in tradesmanship or craftsmanship. Since most Nepalese people are accepting your taking pictures or willing to see the photos you just shot, it’s very pleasant to shoot such images…
Kathmandu is the capital of Nepal. I stopped there twice during my recent trip to this Himalayan kingdom-gone-republic. The city was pleasant to visit if a bit too loaded with tourists for my taste (the first baseball cap is already too much for me). But I got a few images from it. Here are a…

Doom is back in 2009 – A leak from Nepal
So, the great FPS game will be back before the end of the year 2009. Either the launch campaign started early in Nepal or the bus drivers are using their vehicles as video game weapons (the latter would explain the extraordinarily high frequency of dramatic road accidents there).
Paddy field, high or wide?
Sometimes an image (from Nepal or elsewhere) hesitates on the better orientation to give to the photographer. Which one of these two Nepalese paddy fields would you choose?
When visiting Nepal, I could take a plane trip for some sight seeing, from Kathmandu to the Mount Everest (the highest point of our world at 8848m or 29028ft). Its Nepalese name is Sagarmāthā (Nepali: सगरमाथा), and it is very near to the Lhotse, another 8000-summit (precisely 8516m or 27940ft). The image here was taken…
Even the local guy does not seem too sure about it! YouTube link I’m not prone to vertigo, but I would not try it. I am happy being currently in Nepal and not in Pakistan. Wait! Here is a bridge in Nepal: YouTube link
