Photo Hunt: Pointed





When I lived in Kathmandu, we were walking distance to Swayambunath Stupa. I used to love to wander around, especially early in the morning. It was very sacred and very public at the same time.

Hey Colin, how many people can say that? "When I lived in Kathmandu..." It's a bit unique!

You know, I was just thinking the same thing. I can support Alessandro through his early pool ventures.... and when he turns pro, he can support me!

I like that idea. :)

He's up against 400 men in the Mens World Masters and he's up against the top junior in the world in round one of the Junior World Masters.

I wonder where he will go next?

Now that is an exotic location that I personally will never have the opportunity to see in person. You were quite fortunate to have experienced all of that. Great photographs.

I've got my PhotoHunt entry up at http://www.anniemayhem.com/cgi-bin/wordpress/ in case you're interested. If you do visit, please leave a comment and feel free to explore the rest of my little blog.

Beautiful. I wonder how they clean something as high as that.

Such amazing structures. So many Asian buildings are pointed, I wonder why?

I did Photo Hunt today, too! Come see mine and put your link up. :)

Pointing heavenwards majestically! I also like the flapping of the Buddhist prayer flags against the blue sky.
