Une jeune novice en quête de sa nourriture au marché de Mandalay
Les moines bouddhistes (bhikkhu) sont totalement dépendants de la générosité continue des laïcs pour leur subsistance, les laïcs offrant les « quatre nécessités », les objets essentiels à la vie du moine, comprenant : les vêtements monastiques, le bol à aumônes permettant de recevoir la nourriture, le logement et les remèdes .
A young novice nun in quest of her food at Mandalay market
Budist monks own almost nothing and depend on laity for their subsistence:
2 robes An additional robe to protect from the elements when necessary, a bowl for water and food a water-strainer, a razor to shave his head, needle and thread and any necessary approved medicine.

Lovely portrait, well composed and presented. Colors are natural but not dull - they contrast with each other and make this photo more interesting. Very good sharpness.

Outstanding quality... Impressive face, an interesting daily life story. Once I have offered some food to a monk in Chiang Mai, but he politely declined.
All the best wishes and Happy New (European! ) Year! )))
Greetings from Russia!

Lovely portrait of this young novice, wonderful background that highlights the fuzzy figure, an expression on his face that I find as sad and absent, of course well captured an intense gaze.
Good brightness and sharpness.
Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2013.

a quite beautiful shot this. The soft light and detailing are just irresistible. It is an evocative study of a life that we can only imagine about. Stunning!

beautiful,meaningful,but also kind of sad when we see her face expression full of cares and worries.You had definitely excellent sense for portraits.This one is remarkable-well framed and the timing was also perfect to capture it.

This is a beautiful intimate portrait with very appealing soft darker background making her stands out sharply. Although she is not looking into the lens I quite like it, she seems disconnected her own unaware of your presence. The expression is just lovely beautifully lit and the colours seem to bring out the textures in her skin, and perfect soft shallow dof and subtle shades and shadows too. Fine portrait,

Very nice portrait of this young boy in Mandalay.
The face tells so many stories.
The green stripe on the back of his left shoulder adds a very unique taste to the compo.
TFS and all the best for 2013 !

Another really good portrait, without hair and make up it almost looks like a monk with the golden robe, the pink below suggest she is indeed a novice nun. She seem to be in her own world, day dreaming perhaps. I might have clone out the rice on her forehead :) Though it is very original.

Hi dear Patrick
Another fresh and newly taken best shot!
Greatest closing-up and cropped framework!
His a little sad and melancoly expression is outstandingly attractive. The effect of usage of shades is also fantastic! Thanks a lot and have a good day!

Très beau portrait, les couleurs et le cadrage parfait, mais son regard est si triste, fatigué, très touchant
Bonne année 2013

Lovely up-close portrait with bright colours not only on her robe, but also in the background. I like the way she looks out of the frame, a bit dreamily.
Bonne année & merci pour partager.

Un regard très expressif et triste, la map est parfaite avec tout cet environnement flou pour donner plus d'impact au regard, bonne lumière et palette de teintes douces.

Happy New Year dear Patrick. This is a beautiful portrait. I like the far away look in the nun's expression and the delicate light has modelled her face very well. The narrow depth of field adds to the serene look by giving the shot a very attractive softness. Fine work. Warm regards rosemary

Très beau, très pur, ton portrait.
La novice semble pensif.

Hi Patrick. What a schönesund subtle portrait. The view of the novice is directed inward. She almost seems to be dreaming. The portrait is unfolding perfectly from the blurred background. Also good handling of light. My compliments for this masterful portrait.

A touching photo indeed. Very nicely captured expressions on her face. Her sad eyes have really touched my heart. Lost in thoughts.........
