Photographer's Note

Three photos today that may be nothing special to most of you, but quite interesting to me. They were all taken in the street leading towards the important Jokhang Temple in Lhasa, Tibet.

The main photo showing an old lady leading a sheep was probably taken in the morning, judging from the hazy light and the wet street. There were often showers during the night. "Morning" in Tibet could mean around 11 AM, because of the strange fact that all of China is in the same time zone, adapted to the needs of Beijing in the far east. 11 AM in Beijing should normally have been 9 or even 8 o'clock in Tibet.

Here is a larger version.

Another obvious morning photo in the same area showing an elderly monk can be seen in a WS. Another WS shows another old man I met close to the temple.

All photos were as usual scanned from Kodachrome slides.
