Travel Shot: The Girl in the Pink Dress

This photo was taken in Dhading, Nepal, where I took a good portion of the photos in our popular post, Children of Nepal Photo Essay.

We visited a family’s home and while our Nepali guide spoke with the family, this little girl kept peeking through the openings in between slats of wood on the balcony upstairs. She was very shy because once she noticed I was photographing her, she quickly ran back into the house.

I love this photograph because of the way the wood frames her face. I also like that there is a few pieces of wood painted blue which gives the photo a bit of color in contrast to her pink dress.
