Kicking off the year 2009

It was the first day of 2009.
This year started with a lot of surprises... i would rather say changes than surprises. I had a glass of wine when the first moments of new year rolled in. And i stayed in open air, besides a fire, listening some soft music and then gazing the stars up in the sky.
Following hours, was normal, washed few heavy clothes and then read a book, reclined, slept for few hours, and then visited Bhaktapur Durbar Square in the evening. 
Living with the joy and the sadness; beauty and the not-beautiful - at the same time, within adjacent moments, it was a remarkable day, as it gave an insightful experience. 

Here are some snaps of the late 008 and starting of 009
Gazal at Tehjeeb, Durbarmarg.

Just after we exited the restaurant.

The fire started, and the wood burnt well.

Heat from front, cold at the back.

Long exposure towards the east from Basundhara. The light probably is American Embassy or the Teaching hospital or the entire city behind the block.

Adpt, ShooRace and Dez.

Dijup is also a photographer.

This is his shot.

Well, now it is proven why we call her "Bhoot".
No offense Adpt, Happy Birthday to you.

Later next day, I visited Bhaktapur in the evening. The introductory picture follows the following picture.
