"Whereto sis?"

*** This image is (2) of (4) in a small series - please check out the other 3 in the series, they are just as wonderful ***


Background to this image:


Firstly, it was a single shot image taken on film back in 1998 on a climbing trip I was on.


Whilst in the Everest region of the Himalaya, I fortuitously came across this little nepalese boy walking towards us (probably no older than 8 or 9) carrying his little sister on his back along one of the high altitude single trails (~4,000M) we were trekking along early one morning. It was approx 1-2 deg, a little breezy and all they were seeking was a warm smile and some lip balm - we happily obliged after i took this quick shot.


Shot was taken in a remote part of the Mt. Everest region, Himalayas. Nepal - May, 1998 on Agfa 50ASA film with Nikon F601 - scanned with Nikon Coolscan 500ED in 2013.
