I have been busy editing photos of street kids in Kathmandu.

Although I spent only six days with “Durbar boys” – I named them this way because they were always hanging out near Durbar Sq – I’m finding myself missing them a lot. Somehow, I felt something special about them. For them, I was probably just one of those foreigners who was passing through, but they were much more than just homeless kids to me. I can’t quite explain but the relationship I had with them was more than “photographer” – “subject”. I felt quite positive a “vibe” from them and I became quite comfortable and was enjoying the time around the boys.

I don’t usually get this kind of feeling too often toward people I photograph, but they are one of those special ones who make me want to return to them. Perhaps I have chance to go back to Kathmandu in a few months. I would like to keep observing them over the long term to see how they grow up.
