Photographer's Note

The Village of Kye or Ki, just below the magnificent Kye Monastery. As in the region of Spiti, the majority of the population of Kye is of Tibetan origin.

In the night before there had been snow fall. The roads & crevices of the mountains bore testimony of this snow. The sky was dull & it was chilly cold. But as the day wore on, the snow melted, blue skies emerged. Returning from Kye Monastery we were mobbed by a group of girls from the village. Actually they were all interested about my daughter who was of their same age. Communication was scant because of language barrier but they were still able to effectively communicate the joy they felt seeing their city bred kin!

All of them wanted to have their pictures taken....how could I refuse the flowers of innocence?
