The Daily Rounds by LindelCaine The Daily Rounds by LindelCaine
Morning laughter, as she shows me ice from a water barrel ...

In the Himalayan village where this cheerful woman lives, water is carried from glacial, mountain streams and stored near homes in barrels. Each morning, there's a layer of ice atop this water. She removes the ice with hands coated in soot from cooking on wood fires and we laugh together at my suggestion that the ice makes a wonderful frame for a photograph.

The village of Kagbeni, Lower Mustang, Nepal.

A retrospective image. 100 ASA Fujichrome FILM.

I understand what you're saying, :hug: ... but this woman is strong and full of love and kindness, despite living in a harsh environment and knowing a life of many hardships. I like her spirit, and in this photograph I feel her full love-for-life laughter can be heard. To me, she is beautiful. :rose:
