Life around Dubar Square

The fact that water is essential of life is a more profound consciousness here in Kathmandu.  Almost everywhere in this old city people with their water jar waiting or getting for water is among the most common scenes.  Considering Kathmandu is at the foothill of Himalayan range, one may believe the melted snow provide this small nation (147,181 sq.km) with population around 30 million a plenty supply, not quite true, and the country's relatively under developed infrastructure made it worse. Quite sad if you think about this, but it is also one of the most often shot pictures during my travel in Nepal.
This image, shot with Canon 1Ds III + EF 85/1.2L, shot in Dubar Square, on those people patiently waiting for their turn for the tiny water stream from underground.
The next one with Canon 5DII with the EF 35/1.4L, patiently wait for the water jar to be filled.
And these two image of a young beautiful Nepali girl,  also shot with Canon 1Ds III + EF 85/1.2L.
