Thanks, Jo. It depends on the situation. I always ask permission before taking someone's picture. These people didn't ask for anything in return. But I am sending copies of the photos to their village, as they were all so lovely. In contrast, the sadhu or holy men at a temple in Nepal did expect around 100 rupees per photo. Some photographers carry portable printers and give a picture to each photo subject. But that's too much weight for me to carry around...

Love the photos. Did you have to give some money to the people that you took photos of? I always ask before I take a photo for their permission and then I am usually told OK but you must pay me. I wonder how you handle this?

Love the faces and the mothers smile is extra special. What a treat to be able to travel there. They will love receiving the pictures you are bundling in the mail.

I biked to the supermarket after viewing these, and found myself carrying the memory of the laughter you captured. It was lovely.

I so enjoy the glimpses of everyday life in other parts of the world. My first thought when seeing the first picture was, however, good grief, they've even got the monks in Nepal wearing Crocs!
