The more photos I see the more photography seems to be a pursuit of being in the right place at the right time and actually knowing when both are. For example:

The dog on the left seems to be soothed, the one on the right looks like it’s about to lunge out the window.
On the other hand it seems that photography is also all about the set up:

According to legend, the festival is held to celebrate the victory over a demon named Tundi who lived in the area known as Tundikhel and is believed that the clamor of horses’ hooves on Ghode Jatra keeps the demon’s sprit away.

Hey, can you spot the photographer?
