Diaries of Nepal 19 // Upper Mustang, Nepal

We’ve been home now for the past 6 months. When I think about the last year, Nepal never seems to leave my mind. I’ve never fallen hard for a country the way I did for Nepal last April. Wanderlusted for others? Yes. But love doesn’t come so easy.

Back in April, Rob challenged me to venture out on a journey beyond the city without him and the comfort of his ability to converse in the local language for me.  A few weeks later I was off on a 7 day faith journey via bus, motorcycle, jeep and tractor through the Annapurna Circuit with three amazing friends to Upper Mustang, all without a tour guide. We depended on strangers, we made new friends, we danced with the locals and, I fell in love with the people and places I was born to love, 12,000 feet above sea level. This is what I saw.

2014: Our Year in Review

I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting lately, new year and all. I usually spend quite a bit of time remembering my experiences, especially through photos. What was I doing last year this time? What about 6 months ago? Have I grown – or stayed the same? Do I see the same – or differently? (Literally..more on this in another post!) It helps me process my surroundings so I think on a deeper level about the things I’ve experienced throughout the year. It also helps me develop my creative process further; where I’ve come from to help me determine where I’m going.  This weekend I took the reflecting up a notch and decided to feature 100 of my favorite photos from our 1 year adventure to Nepal, India, Myanmar and back. The rule was that they all had to come from my iPhone – nothing more, nothing less. I will never ever forget the people we met and the countries we visited. Thanks for following. And cheers to new adventures in 2015!

Last month I had the beautiful opportunity of photographing Elizabeth Eichhorn, founder and owner of Mary Lee Kitchens at her pop-up shop at ArtisanalLA in Pasadena. Elizabeth is all about creating a space in today’s menus for those with dietary restrictions. To do this, her business focuses on discovering recipes that are both sustainable and delicious (as exemplified by her most delicious gluten-free cookies!), and educating others in allergy-sensitive foods. Her heart is to bring community back to the table and she’s doing a pretty good job of it. Thanks Elizabeth for having me along!
