Photographer's Note

I went to the local labor department recently and found that it was closed. So I slipped into the local temple Wat Rajamabopit an exquisite 18th century temple at the edge of the ancient city. I was the only visitor there. In the bot I found a senior monk training a young man for his ordination the next day. At this stage he is giving his blessing. By tradition the monk covers his face with his fan. This is to stress that it is not his personal blessing but that of the Sangha.
