At Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu, we walked around the in the way that Hindu and Buddhist followers do. Our guide stopping, bringing his hands together in front of him, to face and dip his head toward each pair of eyes that look over the land in all four directions, while explaining the rituals performs around this structure. Also circling the stupa were all sorts of people: tourists, shopkeepers, worshippers, artists, and monks. This monk was standing amidst the pigeons and diverse crowds of people in silence collecting money for the monks' livelihood.
Join me on my exploration to Nepal by color. Each image in the coming days will include three parts. From the natural-colored image, I hope you will also visit my feed to see the same view with "tweaked" color, and in black and white. The images represent a week of travels that was experience-rich, eye-opening, and overflowing with thoughtful introspection along with loads of color, people, customs, culture, and sights.
But this little artistic project goes much deeper – with many layers of analogy: Perhaps you will find something thought-provoking...like, that in a world full of half truths and lies, there is still truth: one true image anchors each series of photos – through a discerning eye, by peeling away the finishes, you can uncover the true subject captured. Or you may discover there's much more to life than just the black and white representation you see – including heartwarming traditions or a deep wisdom. Or maybe you are reminded that even though you see things in one way, another person may interpret those colors differently from you – even in the same place and time.
Tell me, what do you see?
