Photo of the Week: An Old Man in Durbar Square, Kathmandu


Photo of the Week: An Old Man in Kathmandu, Nepal

This old guy was enjoying the sunshine on a cold day in Kathmandu. I was wandering around the remarkable Durbar Square when I spotted him and couldn’t resist sneaking a shot. I loved his perfect pose and the way his weathered skin contrasted with the intricate carvings of the temple behind him. His hat’s pretty awesome, too.
