The streets of Thamel, Kathmandu. - Memento | Stephan Geyer | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


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.....
