    A little oversaturated for my tastes but a lovely portrait nonetheless.

    Beautiful portraits. That\'s right that the color is a little bit oversaturated. But it\'s still a very nice picture.

The story behind "Tibetan Village girls"

We supplied a full service expedition on Everest and for the non-vegetarians we went out to buy some sheep in the small Tibetan villages. This was quite fun as the sheep were still alive and running around, just like we had to do to actually catch them :-)

We had to go to a collection of mudhouses to negotiate about the pay for the sheep and this is where I was eyed by some local girls. 3 of them followed me around, try to find them in the image above: one was happy to have her picture taken, one was totally hesitant and did not want and one looked just a bit skeptical ;-)
