This is an image I made in the Asian country of Laos. The young Buddhist Monks make their rounds early each morning to receive their food (alms) for the day. Citizens of the community sit patiently waiting for the Monks to come at their regular time. No words are exchanged between the Monks and the people giving them food. It is a silent affair and wonderful to see and to photograph.
I used a 70-200mm for these images so that I would not interfere with the procession. In this way I was able to make candid portraites of the scene. Keeping the composition "clean" without too many distracting elements was my goal. By watching the "Background" and the sides of my frame I was able to "keep things tight".
When doing this type of photography where I am photographing people I like to interfere as little as possible with what is going on and thus show respect for the participants.
