“Temples of Kathmandu”

Larry Louie photographed the Tripureshwar Mahadev Mandir Temple in the slums of Nepal’s capital city, steps away from where people lived under bridges. “Most foreign tourists are warned away from Kathmandu, told this is a chaotic city falling apart,” he says. “This photo shows there’s still old beauty here, even in the slums.” He was drawn to the scene by the flying birds, backlit by the sunrise burning through the fog. “The scene was such a contrast to its surroundings.” (Canon EOS 5D Mark II digital camera, 24-105mm lens at 24mm, exposure at 1/125 second, f/11, ISO 400)
