Monastery — Golog Tibet


My camera intrigued this guy while I was taking photographs from the outside of a Tibetan Buddhist monastery. After held my camera and took a few photographs of me with it, he invited us into the actual monastery to take more photos from the inside which is a very rare experience and an honor to do so. It turned out that he was actually quite important as he was the chief reader at the monastery. After we had toured all types of rooms and areas someone rarely gets to see, let alone take photographs them. He invited back to his small house on the monastery where he served us tea and bread while he looked at my photographs on the LCD on the camera, each time he finished a CF card I would change to the next as if he was using a “View-Master”
