I found this photo on Pintrest. it shows the Durbar Square of Kathmandu blanketed in a sheet of fog. The fog adds an air of mystery and timelessness to the photograph.

part of a new project I am working on. I am creating an archive with all of the photos I have taken in South Asian and photos of all the objects I have from South Asia.

so, I am so jealous of this photo, everytime I passed these doors there was something in front of them, so I got no photo of my own. But I guess I don't need to since it has been taken. πŸ˜•

Swaminathan,
I have been to India multiple times. I was living in Udaipur between April 2016 and May 2017. I have been to Nepal twice and Bangladesh once. I have a Nikon D7100 and I primarily use an 18 - 55mm lens. However, I hope to buy a mirrorless camera before my next trip. πŸ“·πŸ˜Š

This is the first photo on the feed from Sri Lanka (Ceylon)! An interesting portrait from the colonial realm.

Old city Phuket is very hipster and worth visiting. Very different from the touristy party areas in Patong. The big Buddha in Phuket is also great.

Take a boat trip from Phuket to nearby islands if you can.

In Bangkok, see several other Pepo channels in Bangkok and Thai Food Stories for some great tips!

One reason I love photography is that it drives my desires to explore the world. I really want to go to Pakistan.

I came across this 19th century photo from Nepal! Finding Nepali photos is rare, so I thought I would share it with you.

Photography is funny. It can tell the truth but usually with a slant. This photo is soooo Rajasthani, however not a scene you would see everyday.

Here is a great example of a photo technique called a frame with in a frame. To achieve the effect, take a photograph through a door or window. This gives the subject two frames, that of the door or window and the edge of the photograph.

In addition to my love of photography, I have a love for India inspired interior design! Here is a photo that combines both. A 19th century photo of an interior of a British home in India.
