Katmandu was an intensely ornate city that is easily damaged. The carvings, details, public spaces were glorious. My heart goes out to its citizens who suffer with their city. As you can see from these images I took in 1976, the medieval town has been delicate for decades. Loosely stacked bricks are everywhere. One can also see what splendid art has been lost. Not all has been destroyed, and I am sure the Nepalis will rebuild as they have in the past. Still, the earthquake shook more than just buildings. 

If you look carefully you may notice something unusual about these photos. They show no cars, pedicabs, or even bicycles. At the time I took these images, Katmandu was an entirely pedestrian city. Everyone walked everywhere. Part of why I loved it. That has not been true for decades, so this is something else that was lost long ago. Also missing back then was signage. There are few signs for stores, or the typical wordage you would see in any urban landscape today. Katmandu today is much more modern, much more livable, or at least it was. 

Blessings on you, Katmandu!

Looking over photographs from yesteryear. I don't often take photos of people and I wanted to share one of my favorite portraits.

Her name was Penelope and I met her briefly while browsing the Nelson-Atkins museum in Kansas City. She had initiated conversation by launching into an appreciation of the 18th-century French art hanging in that room -- just compelled to share with a stranger, I suppose, her joy and knowledge of the work. I asked if I could take her picture and she was suddenly very shy, but still allowed it a few moments later.

Just an image I felt like sharing. A moment from a trip to Memphis several years back.  The kid was pretty struck by what was going on.
