Weekly Photo Challenge: Shadowed

La Paz, Bolivia

I saw this man sitting outside the giant red doors of a gorgeous church and couldn’t resist taking his photo. I enjoyed the shadows of the fading sun cast against the giant red door.

Descent from Thorung La Pass

Thorong La Pass Nepal

Above is the view after reaching Nepal’s Thorung La pass, the highest point at 17,770 feet (5,416 meters) in elevation on the Annapurna hiking circuit which I did four years ago. It is also the site of one of the worst avalanches in Nepal’s history killing dozens of trekkers and porters. It is heartbreaking.

Tukuls and Cactus

Ethiopian Tukul

Tukels are traditional Ethiopian homes. I captured these tukuls and cactus driving through the Rift Valley from Addis Ababa to Hawassa.

Ethiopian farmer

Rural Ethiopia

I was in rural Ethiopia visiting a Lie and Wait house for expectant mothers and saw this farmer tending his plot. I asked him by showing him my camera and smiling (since I don’t speak Amharic) if I could take his photo, and he happily obliged.
