My Favourite Photo

by Brenna Holeman
Kathmandu, Nepal

My travelling partner asked me the other day, “What is your favourite photo that you’ve taken on this trip?” The question is a difficult one to answer, because in the tens of thousands of photos I’ve taken in the last year there are so many I love and so many that remind me of some great times on this great adventure. This one, however, of a child at a religious ceremony at Swayambhunath Temple in Kathmandu, sprung to mind right away. It is one of my favourite photographs.

Comment with a link to one of your favourite photographs that you’ve taken, and I’ll send you a postcard from Indonesia.

It certainly is a beautiful photo! You definitely captured the curiosity the child holds upon seeing you!

Gosh, so tough!
I think this one from Bali (Ubud) is my fav, though!

This is a picture I took of my younger cousins while riding bikes in Doon, Co. Limerick, Ireland. It was such a peaceful and beautiful ride, and every time I look at this picture I’m back in the moment.

This one is my favourite. I took it in Bolivia this past winter in a small village where the people only spoke Quechua. These girls were whispering to each other in a language I could not understand.

I’ve been traveling in Canada recently and this is a favorite from visiting a dear friend in Montreal.

That photo is SO cute!! I suppose one of my favourites is this picture from Hongdae (; I like that he’s mid-sentence in something and we have no idea what it is.
Also, did you get those photos I sent of you and Kerri in the tea shop? They are adorabs 😉

Aw man, so hard to choose!

This is one of my fave photos of all time, though, because it was such a cute moment & an accidental capture.

She was waving goodbye in that cute way that kids do for no reason (she wasn’t going anywhere, apart from down the garden path). And the sun just hit her hair so magically! Adorable.
