    Hey Dave,

    thank you for the photography inspiration!

    I’m often too lazy to take a pic like that.

    I mean, I would take it “without permission” if the girl looks at me while I have my camera on my hands with the right setting, but I would never come back and ask her for permission.

    I will start to do it : )

      Hey Furio,

      Good for you! I think one of the keys is to really take an interest in the subject matter. It becomes a lot easier to take the photo then. It’s one of the reasons I went back to take her photo.

      “Green eyes are hard to come by … and that smile. Don’t miss this opportunity.” I think that’s went through my head at the time.

    Hi Dave,

    Thanks for this one.
    Keep the photo in the gallery!
    Seems like her eyes could unlock some mysteries in life.
    She has a beautiful smile; could sense the challenge in life though her eyes.

    Your blog is a great discovery. I was browsing for “NGO jobs in the Philippines’ – and google brought me to your site. Yep, that’s how it was.
    I have been visiting it (in my fave’s folder), and shared it to some friends; I just subscribed recently.

    I am one of those who visit without leaving a trace. Just appreciating in silence.

    Now, for this one… my mind commanded my fingers to work on the keyboard:)

    Great, educational, informative posts. Thanks!

    God bless…

    Reminds me of The National Geographic girl-by now a woman-she has been looked for,after years! Maybe this one too,so keep her in the Gallery. I’m green eyed-no longer so bright,by the way,I’m glad to know they are rare.

        Many people here remind of green-eyes girl n°1, the woman who became didn’t impress me the same way.Ignored as they got to finally find her.Good luck to N°2!

        Giovanna you are right. I’ve read about the Afghan girl’s life and story. She changed dramatically over the years. There are reasons for that.

        I hope this N.2 does well.

        Here it’s forbidden to photograph children without their parents’s permission,there could be a fuss,even if rule,imagine,is not ever applied to.You are lucky you still can pic with naivetè,and leave us something beautiful to remember.

      Opps sorry about the vote Lisa. It froze up yesterday for some reason. I managed to get it working again. Photos going to go into the gallery!

    Great photo! Not only does she have green eyes, but her teeth are amazingly straight and white. This reminds me of the famous National Geographic photo of the woman with light eyes (from Afghanistan?). As someone with green eyes I always like seeing my brethren around the world :)

      Hi Leslie,

      Wow, never knew you had green eyes! Your one of the rare gems in the world!

      Yes, her teeth are really white and straight. Nepalese people seem to have good genes in general when it comes to teeth!

    Wow, I’ve never seen an Asian with green eyes in Asia. It’s an amazing picture and glad you went back and she approved. It reminds me of the famous NatGeo picture of the Afgan girl from Steve McCurry. But in contrary this Nepalese girls is smiling. Green Eyes always facinated me. Cheers from Berlin

    Those eyes are fiercely stunning. She is simply gorgeous!

    I’d rank this picture one rung below Steve Curry’s Afghan girl photo! Equally haunting, but a much more pleasant kind of “haunting”. Afghan girl is tragically haunting.

    This is a BEAUTIFUL photo. Kind of like the National Geographic photo of the Afghan girl. It is fantastic and one of a kind. Should be on the cover of your photo album.

    I was amazed to see her eyes, she’s so beautiful and i hope nothing bad has happened to her. Now i have seen only 2 people in 47 years with eyes like that & I’m one so to see her was a shock. When asked what color are my eyes i say ‘you tell me’:) I thank you so very much for sharing this amazing beauty:)
