Photographer's Note

You know, when travelling, you rapidly get used to seeing the hords of tourists coming down of their bus and invading the front of landmarks while you're trying to take your shot while the light is good...all 80 of them, one after another they take a picture of the landmark, then stand in front of it while their fellow tourist take a picture of them. They hustle, they're loud, they stink, they follow the guide holding a flag at the end of his umbrella...You know them, you know what I mean.

However, when the bus contains 8-9 young monks, coming up with their cell phones and digital camera. They come with their usual calm behavior, serenity...you get what I mean. Well, then, it is MUCH different! It's so weird to see them being curious, take pics of one another with their cell phones, cameras, smiling...they almost looked excited! It was a special moment believe me!

Well, I would not let the occasion pass without taking a quick pic...just before another group of tourists came up and all went for a picture with the group of monks, annoying the monks, the other tourists, and maybe even Buddha...who knows?

Have a good day folks,

Marc
