A VIEW OF THE WORLD THROUGH MY CAMERA LENS

Nepal landscapes

A complete edited series of images from my Nepal trip is in the works and will soon be up via few themed releases.
Meanwhile going through all the images , I keep discovering landscapes of the beautiful places I was lucky enough to have my memories enriched with.

On the road in Nepal – Road trip to Pokhara

After I spent just over a day in beautiful Chitwan, searching for people I got a history lesson from, I set off for another 150 km and too manny hours drive to Pokhara. With some godly protection carefully glued to the dashboard of the car, I ventured into a completely new landscape and the Himalayas started to take shape as the road was winding and curving.

The crazy truck drivers, seemingly omnipresent on Nepal’s roads, made me question if the holy figurine on the plastic dashboard of the new car, the driver was proudly steering along the curved two lanes road ,was having a real effect on our well being.

Already proud of my achievement – didn’t scream once during the manny hours of extreme adventure sitting on the passenger seat while on the highways of Nepal – I kicked my camera into gear and captured as much as I could from the life on the side of the road. (between breaks when car sickness symptoms were slightly overwhelming).

Before I knew it, the Himalayan landscape took over my senses. Another dream was just unfolding in front of my eyes and after years of trying to see these mountains, I was staring at the Annapurna range of the Himalayas with the Annapurna II peak (7937m) in the center of this majestic view.

Silence

“When you sit in silence long enough, you learn that silence has a motion. It glides over you without shape or form, exactly like water. Its color is silver. And silence has a sound you hear only after hours of wading inside it. The sound is soft, like flute notes rising up, like the words of glass speaking. Then there comes a point when you must shatter the blindness of its words, the blindness of its light.”  ― Anne Spollen

“Have you ever heard the wonderful silence just before the dawn? Or the quiet and calm just as a storm ends? Or perhaps you know the silence when you haven't the answer to a question you've been asked, or the hush of a country road at night, or the expectant pause of a room full of people when someone is just about to speak, or, most beautiful of all, the moment after the door closes and you're alone in the whole house? Each one is different, you know, and all very beautiful if you listen carefully.”  ― Norton Juster

“You can listen to silence, Reuven. I've begun to realize that you can listen to silence and learn from it. It has a quality and a dimension all its own. It talks to me sometimes. I feel myself alive in it. It talks. And I can hear it. ... You have to want to listen to it, and then you can hear it. It has a strange, beautiful texture. It doesn't always talk. Sometimes - sometimes it cries, and you can hear the pain of the world in it. It hurts to listen to it then. But you have to.”  ― Chaim Potok
