This is my attempt at being artistic :)  The picture is of a prayer flag on a pole (I'm lying on my back for the shot).  All over Nepal there are flags which have prayers written on them.  When the wind blows, and the flag flaps, the prayer is "spoken".  If the same wind that flapped the flag touches you, then you get the prayer that was written down.  A rather effective way of getting blessings.  These are Buddhist flags and even though this one is white, you can see little extra pieces of cloth that are the five main colours (red, white, blue, green, yellow)  All flags have these five colours on them in one way or another.
