    Honestly ? The way people , especially children , react on your appearance tells me more about you , than about anything else ;-) The Mirror-effect . On top of that , you seem to have the talent to use your camera at just the right split-second. And that’s what’s making the most of your pictures of people so extremely beautiful and intense. (I think)

    Beautiful and precious little faces! I agree with your comments on parents spending time with their children.

    I think your photographs are outstanding, but I can’t help feeling you may have overdone it with sharpening. Is it intentional to deter copyright theft?

    @jonathan, thanks for your comment.
    I think you are right on some of the older photos, which were prepared on a different monitor. When seeing them again on my new monitor they look a bit oversharpened as well, strange how much influence the monitors have!

    It is not intentional (though I do upload with watermark and lower compression against theft). Cheers, Harry

The story behind "Khumbu Valley Kids, Nepal"

According to the signs thousands of trekkers enter the Sagarmatha national park every year. But still these kids seemed totally amazed to see me enter the park gate opposite their house.
They like to say hello and shake your hand, and might ask for some sweets or even money, but they are never annoying or rude or aggressive as their western counterparts many times are. Maybe the parents over here should learn to relax a bit more and spend more time with their kids instead of handing them out to daycare centers the moment they are born?
