Nepal Famous by erezmarom Nepal Famous by erezmarom
A sadhu (hindu holy man) in Pashupatinath Temple, Kathmandu, Nepal.
When I took this guy's photo, everyone in the area told me: "This man - Nepal famous!", referring to the thousands who had previously photographed him. Still, I couldn't resist the shot. Some makeup job! :)
PP includes mild HDR and blue-channel work. I actually have this one hanging on the wall in my place...

Canon 40D
Canon 50mm f/1.8

I thought so. Maybe he motioned vigorously though!
and that's some pretty good make-up job if his nose doesn't pop up like that in reality!

Sadly I couldn't speak to him, I think he didn't speak any english.
About his nose- only now I notice it, but yeah - it's crazy :)

lovely!
he looks like a pretty cool guy.:) Did you "speak" to him at all?
Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but his nose seems a little odd - like it just pops up (?).
