Photographer's Note

On the streets of Bhaktapur in the Kathmandu Valley, dozens of women can be seen sifting grains in large woven pans. This allows for the separation of the grains when harvested from the husks and other unwanted material. The grains were being placed in the large sacks behinds, I assume for safe storage in readiness for the cold winter months ahead. Bhaktapur was a place of simplicity, peace and tranquility. It was beautiful to watch the locals cheerfully tending to their work and carrying out daily activities. It was rewarding to venture further than the large tourist crowds gathered in the main town square and visit some of the fringes of the settlement where the rural and urban boundary merged.
