Kathmandu Photography – Markets

6 Comments 14 April 2010

The city of Kathmandu is filled with markets everywhere you go.  The morning is especially active as kids make their way to school by foot and adults get their fresh produce and meat for the day.  Everywhere you look it feels as if someone is selling something; produce, flowers, jewelry, peanuts, and guiding services!  The one thing you can always count on is that it will be colorful!

Bracelets come in every color - you can't buy or wear just one.

    The photo of the bracelets looks almost like part of a reef or something, very reminiscent of something organic.
