Prayer woman

The photo shows one of the women that at night, in front of the Stupa of Kathmandù, lights a candle as a sign of blessing. Only once the candle has been extinguished by the wind, the person returns home to his loved ones. In this case, that woman spent two hours by candlelight before the wind won.
