Photographer's Note

Reminiscing old time. This is a scan image taken many years ago on my trip to Tibet, on the out skirt of a small village of Tingri, near the Everest Base Camp. It was all quiet but the sound of the bitter cold wind. The sky is threatening with rain. Just when we were getting ready to go back to our room to stay warm, out of the nowhere the sound the galloping noise of the horse, and the man and his horse wagon appeared around the corner. The whole scene was like something so surreal like a scene from old movies, and not in real life. The man was hiding his face from the wind and the rain has just started. I don’t think he ever realized we were there.

Life is extremely difficult up here. Nothing much really grows at this altitude. Not a single tree or anything green in sight, but strong bitter cold wind and barren land. Yet people live and survived up here with so little.
