Resting in the Mid Day Sun

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Christine Mead

Across Nepal, colorful laundry dries on washing lines in the sun, and dogs escape the heat to sleep in the shade wherever they can find it. I took this photograph because, for me, it captures the essence of the calm, laid-back feel of Nepal, even in the hectic noise of the city of Kathmandu.

Location: Kathmandu, Nepal
