My 7 Best Portrait photos of the year 2017!

Here are my 7 best portrait photos from this year 2017. Most of them are from my trip to Jumla during the month of June.Kid PortraitThe world is confined within her eyes! Didn’t you see? Watch them again… <3 The shot was taken while I was on a trip to Jumla. My blog about Jumla: http://www.manojbohara.com/reasons-visit-jumla-sinja-valley/Candid ShotLook at his eyes!!! PASSSIONATE, Isn’t it? <3 I met this amazing soul while strolling around Jumla Bazaar. His eyes immediately caught my attention. He was smoking then. I was a bit hesitant to ask him for a photograph. But I really wanted to take a photo of him. Hesitantly, I asked him for a photo and he agreed. I fell in love with his eyes; such a passionate eyes!!! After a face to face shot, I was more selfish about photographing. I wanted to take more shots of him. He was continuing to smoke again. And I was not done with taking his photos. Wanted to take a candid shot. I was having conversation with him. And I was lucky enough to get this shot. Eventually content with the shot, we bid farewell to each other. What a lovely meeting that was. My blog about Jumla:http://www.manojbohara.com/reasons-visit-jumla-sinja-valley/Kids PortraitTitle: INNOCENTLY SMILING!!! Shot at Sinja, Jumla while she was about to leave for her school. My blog about Jumla: http://www.manojbohara.com/reasons-visit-jumla-sinja-valley/

Nepali man
The Sulfa Smoker!!!! During my two days stay, I had very good conversation with this man. At first he was very shy talking to me and was teasing me with the nickname Dhami. But after sometimes, he was comfortable and talked for hours. Told me about his family, the village, villagers and his life stories too. Shot at Malika Bota, Jumla. Malika Bota is the gateway for the trekkers to Rara Lake in Mugu District. My blog about Jumla: http://www.manojbohara.com/reasons-visit-jumla-sinja-valley/

But I had no idea at all! She left me awestrucked. Shot at Jumla. My blog about Jumla: http://www.manojbohara.com/reasons-visit-jumla-sinja-valley/

About the author

I come from the land of Gurkhas; the brave soldiers who fought tirelessly and didn’t let any countries rule Nepal. Because of those Gorkhalis, the Nepalese are proud to call “Nepal has always been an independent nation so far.” Nepalese Flag is the world’s only non-quadrilateral national flag; red color symbolizing the bravery and blue symbolizes peace and harmony. What a proud thing. Also, Nepal was the Hindu Kingdom in the past and now a secular state welcoming people from all the religions. Nepal is a country of living heritages and Kathmandu a city of temples. All in all, Nepal is a country with Unity in Diversity. Thank you for reading the boring random shits. These things don’t relate to me in any way. And those are not the things that describe me. If I introduce myself with the common voices of any nationality, group or community, it’s nothing but sheer stupidity. A part of it can be a shared introduction but not fully. So who am I? I don’t know who I am. It’s been years of SEARCH but nothing has been excavated yet. And also, I am not the right person to describe who I am. It's you who know me and whatever I say about me makes no sense. You tell me who I am ;)
