Pictures of Bisket Jatra from Thaumadi, Bhaktapur. It’s always fun to watch this festival as the chariot is pulled from 2 side. It’s like watching a tug or war between 2 side of the city .

This time I have tried to capture picture with long exposure to give different feel than the ones I have captured before.

Villages of Lalitpur District and Bagmati river

At least one Saturday in a month me and my friends plan for a photography trip. Sometime it’s some monument inside the Kathmandu valley or some villages near by. Last month we went to Nallu in Lalitpur and a newly established Pathibhara temple there.

In that trip, I could not capture the things that I wanted to, so felt lazy to write a blog on it. But now I felt guilty that at least I should have written a brief travel story on that trip.

This Saturday on 8th April, we had a photo shoot plan of our friends, but due to technical problem we had to cancel it. Since we were already out from home with our cameras, we planed to go to Markhu via Pharping. I had already been to Markhu and Kulekhani dam before, so I had already created some imaginary angle to capture the Indra Sarowar lake.
