    Lovely image Bob, I am always enchanted by monks. I am heading to Laos in January but have heard it is hard to photograph monks without hundreds of tourists around. Did you find this too when you were there?

  • Hi JodieT…Thank you very much for your wonderful comment and your compliment on my image. I appreciate it very much. All of the monks in Laos, Cambodia and generally Thailand want to speak with tourists to practise their English (and other languages). Once you make contact with them they are very proud to have you photograph them in most cases. I always get some form of permission, even a simple gesture, saying they are okay with my photographing them. Good luck in your journey and please email me when you get back so I can see and hear what you found…Cheers Bob
