Two Candles & Cigarets
Portrait of a shopkeeper at night, in the lights of candles, in Kapilvastu, Lumbini region, Nepal
The small town is already plunged into deepest night. Only few little shops bring light along the dark main road that leads to my hotel. Behind his table, an old man smokes cigarets while his grand children are playing around. Two candles placed directly on the table light his shiny eyes. One has almost entirely melted when I asked the shopkeeper if I could take a photo. Soon will be time to close the shop.
Kapilvastu is located in Southern Nepal, near the border with India.
