Walking through the villages in Phulbhari, a small town in the Nepali Himalayas, we came across this little boy on a dirt road. Upon making eye contact with us Westerners, he immediately pressed his hands together and brought them to his forehead and bowed to each of us. Coincidentally, I had my camera in my hands and captured the moment he stole my heart. I snapped the shot, dropped to my knees, and returned the gesture of 'Namaste'.
Location: Phulbhari, Nepal
