Redux: Kathmandu's Boudhanath Stupa | Matt Brandon

Redux: Kathmandu's Boudhanath Stupa | Matt Brandon | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Kathmandu is a strange mix of Hindu and Buddhist culture. With only a few days to explore my friend Jon and I are sticking around Kathmandu. Our hotel is right across the road from Boudhanath – one of the holiest Buddhist sites in Kathmandu, Nepal. It’s also the most photographed spot in the country,  so how do you photograph it in a way completely different than (a) you’ve done before or (b) like no one else has done? For me, it was trying to look through the obvious and observe what was happening. One of the first things you notice are the masses of people circumnavigating the stupa. I wanted to capture that movement. In fact almost every image of Boudhanath this trip has been about movement. I think it is because there seem to be people everywhere.  I set up my tripod in one of the corners and shot with a slow shutter speed and used the Multiple Exposure feature of the X-Pro1 to show the crowds and the movement....

I've been very lazy/slow in processing photos from my trips, but I have decided it is time to get back to the basics. Early April this year, I decided to embark in one of my mountaineering trips, this time to climb Island Peak (6180m) in Nepal. I will be posting photos from the trek and from the summit push in the coming week, but in the meantime, I am posting some of my personal favourite shots of the streets of Thamel, the iconic neighbourhood of Kathmandu. All the photos were taken with my X-Pro1 and either my 35/1.4 or my 18/2.0 Fujinon lenses. The last time I went mountaineering, I took my 5D and 35L lenses - what a difference it makes, not to the extra weight of a DSLR! Anyway, enough of this and on to the photos. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them.....

Thx Stephan for your suggestion. Great shots!
