Name your fav Brussels streets! 📷 by @myscellaneous - "I sometimes think I crave cities just as much as large expanses of land or forests or beach. Each city has an energetic quality all its own- a way of speaking, an individual offering, and their own darkness and light. And as for me, sometimes my longing searches the whole world. I want to know these places. I want to feel their hidden corners and history. I want to seek things I've not known. And I want to find stories of struggle and victory and play and hope. I want to meet locals and views and museums. I want stories not yet told." 🍃
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.
