My grandmother would have turned 96 today,...

My grandmother would have turned 96 today, but sadly passed away last August when I was in #Nepal shooting for a @nova_pbs film on the #earthquake as well as shooting #archaeology in Upper #Mustang. Interestingly, it was her trip to Nepal during the 1990 People’s Movement, and her stories of this inspiring and wonderful country and people that really piqued my interest in visiting and learning. While I would’ve much preferred to be at her bedside when she passed, it was strangely fitting that I was instead on the other side of the world, under distant stars in the country she opened my eyes to – and which has since changed and impacted my life in deep and profound ways. Happy Birthday, Grandma. I love you. | In this still-rough #timelapse, #clouds at #sunset scatter in front of the pyramid of #Nilgiri, a prime sentinel in Upper Mustang rising high above the #Kali #Gandaki River. #challengeonnaturephotography day 3. #liveyouradventure #goneisntgone #gonebutnotforgotten #HelpCarryTheLoad #nepaliloveyou #nepalquake #timelapseworldly
