I sat in the monastry on the steps, hoping that the rain held off, framed the doorway and waited, first a bullock cart went past, but I was so excited that I clicked or rather clunked in such a hurry I missed the moment. So then I waited and waited and finally the two young boys rode past slowly, and turned to see what I was doing.
Although I am not tryign to compare this at all with Maciej's beaut. shot, (A moment of Patience in Hue)he was my inspiration here. Thanks Maciej. And also thanks to Herve, Philip and Tom for their thoughts. I am off to Burma today...see you soon.

A natural and so beautiful frame for this nicely composed shot. A virtue superbly rewarded here
PS I wish you a very good trip, looking forward to seeing your pics from Burma

This is another beautiful framing of a scene ... the bicycle and tree are perfect for this kind of framing and the perceived eye contact between the viewer and the two boys definitely makes a connection.
