I found myself walking through this brothel in southern nepal and didn't realize it at first. When I did I began shooting literally from my hip with my leica m6 hoping not to get caught. I think they thought there was something wrong with my camera as I cursed it like it was broken. Anyway, after

enough dirty looks I made my exit.
