Photographer's Note

Budist monks are one of the subjects you can not resist to take their pictures. Some monks are happy about it, some dislikes. Ofcourse we already have an image in our minds how a budist monk should look like. On my journey to Indochine at some moments I was so frustrated ( I am not saying I am right, just the already existing excellent mystic image in my mind does it) seeing some monks chatting with mobile telephones in the back garden of monasteries, or mocking each other, drinking coke, how donations are collected etc. This young student monk in Mandalay made me feel he knows what he is doing.

As I had set my camera to 400 ISO for interior capture of their meal time , I had no time to bring it to outdoor ISO seeing this little man on my way out.
