Old nepali guy with blue eyes, Bhaktapur, Katmandu Valley, Nepal by Alex_Saurel on Flickr.Via Flickr:
World Tour 2013 - 2014 - day 166
Bhaktapur is among the main touristic places around Katmandu and it worths it. 
I was taking picture of the crowd from above this man. Of course I d like to have a pic of him but did not dare to ask because he seemed to be here like working and asking money for picture, which I refuse ( but I could be ok for long posing which is a real work). When he noticed me he urged me to take a pic of him. I was aware of the after pic money demanding but since I knew that people are not aggressive in Nepal I took the risk. I did 3 clicks just taking care to avoid the ugly bicycles on the background (finding the good background and light is always the harder for this kind of portrait). Of course he asked money and I answered politely in approximate Nepali that he should have tallen that before asking me. I was ready to erase the pic of course but hopefully he did not insisted and did not seem to care about it. I say hopefully because this guy has such a beautiful visage that he would deserve to be professional actor.
