Weekly Photo Challenge: Broken – Bhaktapur, Nepal

When I saw the  subject of this week’s challenge all I could think about was the continuing sorrow for the disaster in Nepal.  I chose this photo as it shows happier days in the ancient capital area known as Bhaktapur in Katmandu.  This area was almost totally destroyed by the earthquake(s).  While we were there in 2013, we also discussed the political situation in the country which was struggling to come up with a new constitution and government structure.  That situation can only exacerbate the dire need in this devastated country.  The city and much of this country are tragically “Broken” and in need of whatever the rest of the world can provide.  I stopped short of including a link to relief organizations but I hope that you might consider giving to one of your choice.

Bhaktapur in better times...

I also wanted to include a more human photo to put a face on those in need….

  4. Great photos! And good interpretation of Broken.
    By the way, your photo reminds me of the beautiful Vatsala Durga temple which has collapsed by the earthquake

    • Cerita – Thanks – that temple is in the same area that I took both of those photos – very sad loss!
