Walking alone in the Patan Durbar Square of Kathmandu, Nepal, I watched the children playing among the temple walls. Many Children wanted me to take their picture, but I especially loved the shyness of this little sister with her sweet and pure smile too embarrassed to linger away from the corner of the temple with her friends. Among all the other children, her purity stood out among the rest.
