We stopped back at the town to pick up our friend from her sister’s before making the journey back to Kathmandu. We left late in the afternoon to avoid the traffic jams. We arrived back at our hotel around 1 am. I shall be keeping in contact with these dear friends and praying for their ministry. I hope to see them again.

Day Three Gandaki villages, up in the mountains We were picked up by some friends and went to their home/orphanage/church. A beautiful white and blue accented building with gorgeous views of the city. The children were welcoming. What an experience it was to worship with Nepali believers.

Things emerge striking and sensational, which are then controled and honed-in on in second and third drafts. I give myself rules, and see what develops. It's always an interes
Please enjoy the newest edition to my Photo Montage Travel Art Pieces: a tribute to my time in the Azores; predominantly Terceira with features of Sao Miguel. After spending a year in the Azores, primarily on the island of Terceira, I have been working on montage pieces to capture the essence of the island. Tiles are huge in the Azores. Most houses have their family name and/or a patron saint displayed on the wall of their house; made up of 6 to 8 bathroom/kitcken sized squar
I get lots of ideas in the middle of the night after my son has woken up, gone back to dreamland, and I'm still struggling to fall back asleep.
This new body of Montage Photography work has developed from one of those middle of the night ideas.
I love taking photos when I am traveling, or visiting a new place. New scenes, new landscapes, culture, architecture. A subject I realize I photograph a lot is the church: cathedrals, chapels, mosques temples. Not too many synagogu
