A picture of a nvice monk eating icecream. Actually, I was aiming to capture the tattoo more than him (which I did) but the picture looked rather ordinary. So, i stepped back a little and included him in the frame. I liked it a lot better. Now there is a story to this picture. Worldly indulgence?

Hi Manny, not an ordinary picture of monks indeed. Excellent composition working like a vice-versa of monastery life. Great shot indeed, suggesting a smile from every viewer, I guess. Great image. Cheers, --amz

great work. i can figure out that this is a tantrik mural. this is a fantastic composition. the monk's cloth on the left seems to be so lively, it almost looks coming out of my screen.
Thanks for posting.

Hi Manuel, very nice colors and very powerful crowded composition, this tattoo and the kid eating the ice cream have been captured at the right time... Very good to have the kid in the frame by the way...

Religious but still human... Great shot with wonderful colors, and I like the story this picture tells...
