This photo was taken at the ancient city of Bhatapur, when I saw Ganga my heart beat faster because of her attire, beauty and the background. I knew it would be a remarkable photo. I asked for permission to shot, she was reluctant but several older ladies nearby encouraged her. I snapped and then bought her a necklace to match her outfit. I learned she was 18 and married, her husband had been watching. :) Thanks for comments!

Dear Anusha: Yes, photo was taken at Bhaktapur, an ancient city near Kathmandu. Ganga was 18-years old, newly married and very shy. When I asked to take her photograph she wasn't comfortable with the idea, some older ladies nearby convinced her that it would be okay. After the photo, I bought her a beaded necklace to match her stunning outfit. It was a great day for me to get such a wonderful image. Many people admire it. Thanks for noticing! :) :)
