A postcard from Nepal: souvenir seller
By the statue of Shiva near Pokhara
A statue of Shiva, the second largest in Nepal, was unveiled near Pokhara just last year. No doubt I’ll be sharing more about that in a future post. But meanwhile here’s one of my favourite images from our visit, a lady selling souvenirs next to the steep path up to the statue.
We’ll be heading back home in a couple of days, so this will be my last ‘postcard’ for now. But if you think that means it’s the last you’ll hear or see of my Nepal trip, you don’t know me very well!
A beautiful photo – her wonderfully colorful clothing and of course, the peak, so perfectly framed. I see in the comments that she was not willing, but I might have done the same in your place! Looking forward to more from Nepal.
I couldn’t resist capturing her in that spot and I suspect many other visitors will have felt the same. Most of the other sellers were in a group slightly lower down the path so she really stood out from the crowd.
Beautiful capture. An umbrella is an unlikely accessory unless it is monsoon. Can’t wait to read more of your Nepalese adventure.
Thanks Amanda 😊 She’s using the umbrella to shade her produce from the hot sun.

Nepal was was such an incredible site we visited. And an amazing image. Anita
Thank you Anita – yes, an incredible country to visit 😀
Thank you for the postcards… 🙏🏻
Om mane padme om.
You’re very welcome – thanks for stopping by 🙂
It is a fascinating spot on the planet…
Sarah, once again you’ve managed to capture a striking photo of a person(s) while traveling! The incredible landscape in the background and the woman’s colorful native dress and facial features in the foreground make it a perfectly wonderful combination!
Thank you so much Sylvia, I really appreciate that comment 😊
I can just tell what an amazing time you’ve had. Can’t wait to see and read more.
Yes, amazing is the right word! Spending our last night in Kathmandu, then the long slog home tomorrow 😒
poetic picture with the colors of the clothing and the snow capped mountains behind 🙂
Thank you, I’m glad you like it 😊
She’s so colourful (with the snow-capped mountain in the background). Can’t wait to hear from your Nepal trip – enjoy the last few days!
Yes, the background made the shot. There were lots of women selling but she was the only one in that perfect spot 😀
A beautiful picture. And that landscape in the background!
I know – she’d chosen the perfect place to stand!
Fabulous portrait of a characterful woman.
Thank you Margaret – it took a few goes to get the shot I wanted!
Obliging woman then!
The opposite! She’d spotted earlier that I was trying to take a photo and turned away. I had to wait till she forgot about me then used the zoom from further off 😀
