Here is a close-up view of the colorful "pot" that the young Buddhist Monk uses to collect his food in. I was attracted to this detail and, utilizing my 70-200mm lens I was able to make the photograph from a distance without interfering with the event taking place. Often photographers forget that the people you are photographing are the most important...not the photographer or the image.
When traveling always be aware of the sensitivity of the local environment and customs. I always feel that I am a representative of Canada when I visit other countries and I act accordingly.
Please go to my Laos Gallery as well as the Galleries for Thailand and Cambodia to see more images from my Asian Travels.
