Young Monks – Luang PraBang, Laos

Purchase this print

As I walked with the morning alms procession in Luang Prabang and took photos, I eventually came to a temple where the monks were finishing their procession. One of the monks said that it was ok if I came in as it was a good chance for them to practice their English. I respectfully went in and sat below the monks and talked to them about their lives in the temple, the procession of alms in Luang Prabang, their educations, their families – it was a wonderful exchange.  Plus – I was able to capture some moments that most tourists don’t get to see.
