Photographer's Note

in case you don't know
the beauty you are...


Tongren in Qinghai province, just across the border from Gansu, is a town built around a large Tibetan monastery. It is famous for its thangka art, a kind of buddhist paintings.

This picture was shot at one of the temples on the outskirts of town. There was a festival going on with lots of firecrackers and smoke.

These two young Tibetan ladies were taking shelter in the portal of the temple. You may notice the painting in the background.

Just a time out to check whether their hair and dress was still OK. But if you ask me, they have more style than the glam model I posted just before.

By the way, the dress with one shoulder out of it, is typically Tibetan.

In the absence of mirrors...
