    Wonderful shot

  • thanks cammie, i really didn’t mean to cut him off just so sharply, but between security, police, bodyguards and being close, it is really hard to get a perfect (photographically speaking, that is) image of His Holiness when he’s moving…

    Nice capture…I know one has to be aware of the Indian police with their batons…even the monks were at risk.

  • thanks sbc, a little official permission helps (when photographing), which is getting harder to get around HH now, and yes, I’ve lived in India for a while, and the police and the police, anywhere….kia ora….tim
