    That\'s magnificent. It\'s an iconic image. Absolutely timeless. Leaves me kind of speechless actually. Btw, thanks for coming by my blog. I answered you there but wasn\'t sure you\'d see it, but thanks for the permission. Much appreciated and I will take you up on that.

    well, by now I see you are the master of kid portraits … not sure if deliberate or accidental but the lips and chin of the person behind the kid are a great addition … and of course the reaching arm … once again BRAVO!!!! .. is that a santa clause print outfit?

    Nice. I think there\'s a kind of simplisity in the boy\'s expression. Encourages the viewer to ponder more.

The story behind "Little Nepali Boy"

This little Nepali boy did not say much, but was interested in me and my camera. Soon after, they continued their play on the dusty trails (there are no streets here) of the Khumbu Valley, Nepal.
