So much colour and life in the people of Nepal. Most of these are from around the Kathmandu Valley and the city of Bhaktapur in particular. C&C welcome.

This young girl was selling flower strings in Kathmandu's Durbar Square. I normally let the hawkers wash over me, but this child radiated such quiet confidence as she nursed here baby brother that she broke through my normal reserve.

Even from within the crowds of Durbar square this flirtation between a young policeman and a young woman caught my eye.

These woman drying their washing in a Bhaktapur square made a colour ful set. I wonder what they're talking about...

I'm always drawn to the elders on any community. the wisdom and experience of their years etched on their faces.

And the simple joys of family life continue wherever one might be

A traditional potter hard at work - he must have created a hundred such vessels everyday given the speed he threw this up.

The many outdoor pavilions that dot the squares serve for everything from prayer to relaxation to a quick shave on the way to work.

And I think this one is my favourite. I reckon any married man could see themselves in this photo...my advice to him would be "stop digging... you know you can't win!"

Two more

This young fella lived in the teahouse at Machermo, the highest point we reached at 4500m (`14000ft)... all the people up there seem to have perpetually sunburnt or windblown cheeks.

This lady was intent of spreading out here pots to dry in the square at Bhaktapur - wouldn't like to have got in her way!

Thanks Guys, a couple more.

These open pavilions seem to the the heart of community life with the old in particular taking their ease and catching up on the days gossip.

This buddhist lady was chanting solemnly over her beads, much as roman catholics would do with a Rosary.
