    Candle blessings


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     TravelinRav took this photo in the run-up to Diwali whilst walking the backstreets of Boudnath, Nepal.

    "[I] really enjoyed the way the light from the candles light up the woman's face," he says.

    "I also was drawn towards how focused she was on what she was doing. I asked if it was okay to hang around and shoot her for a while and she was very happy to oblige. She posed for a few moments and then went back to work after i put my camera down for a while. I then resumed shooting while she was absorbed in her work and managed to capture a shot which I feel truly represents the nature of Diwali."

    A woman in Bhoudnath blesses candles during Tihar, Nepal's version of Diwali.
