    Another one of my favorites! Beautiful composition, lovely muted colors and perfect lighting. This photo makes me want to be in the room with this woman sipping on a cup of tea.

The story behind "Khumjung (8): Sherpani in Kitchen"

I am finishing this second and final part of the Khumjung miniseries with the same kitchen I started with. But this time Ang Temba’s wife is in it, pouring me some deliciously sweet milk tea.

I was just sitting in the kitchen when she started pouring the tea, and when the sunlight came in, the scene immediately reminded of Johannes Vermeer, and his Milkmaid painting. Not that I want to compare myself with the old Dutch master, but the scenery looked familiar :)
