Goodbye, Langtang: “And we were lucky to see it.”

Langtang, Nepal: “The Earth is an angry place, really. So much of it is indescribable through words or lenses; its power lies in the ability to dash your life against mighty forces, or to move your soul by means of its nearly celestial gravity.”

Kathmandu, Nepal, 1999

Headlines become real after you have traveled.    I took this photograph in the spring of 1999. To me, it always embodied the spirit of the Nepalese people I met. These scrappy people can hold their own against any lion. This square may be destroyed now, but this spirit will carry them through.
