Photo of the Day: A Potter in Nepal
Six weeks in and Dream Trip 2009 is going strong! For inspiration for your own entry--and a chance to win a $25,000 vacation to wherever you choose--here's a submission that caught our eye:
It's Friday and the weekend's almost here. There are still tasks to do and projects to complete before calling it a day--or a week.
Dream Trip entrant janadidi captures the universal experience of wrapping up work just before quitting time in the entry Potter's Wheel, showing an artisan practicing his craft in the capital of Nepal--and describing the sense of hope that came from purchasing an item from another craftsman.
"The sun was starting to set in Patan, the old square just outside Kathmandu," writes janadidi. "This potter was still busy at his wheel. The shopkeepers were sweeping up, getting ready to close their stalls for the day. I bought a multi-strand beaded necklace nearby, one like the ladies wore when they got married. I had no prospects for myself but liked the idea of trying the necklace out on my next trek, just to see what it was like."
