"In your light I learn how to love.

In your beauty, how to make poems.

You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you,

but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art."
Mawlana Jalal-al-Din Rumi


About Ladakh, India

About the Photographer ~ Kieron Nelson

“It is easy to dismiss what we do not understand. We are all different; we are all the same.
Indigenous people throughout the world are remarkable, not only for their differences, but for their similarities.
I am a photographer specialising in off-the-beaten-track destinations, to some of the world's most exciting and least- discovered spots.
I have travelled from the jungles of New Guinea to the tribal regions of northwest Pakistan, in search of "Vanishing Cultures".
Tribal people are among the most photogenic in the world,
and I have been a privileged visitor.
I hope to see you someday, on the road less travelled.”

This is a reblog of a previous post. I found that the previous picture was an unauthorized screen grab and distorted at that. I have obtained permission from the photographer. This is her copyrighted photo--so beautiful. You can see the difference in quality. I am now introducing you to her and you may see her work by visiting her blog. Thank you.


  1. i remember this luminous beauty.
    thank you for returning us to this road less traveled.
    may we always seek our common thread, and in seeing it, may all hearts be tied together.

    This child-woman is so innocent, wise, open, surrounded with meaning. The love she has to teach is so beautiful. May she always be full of hope and an inspiration of art.
