MOLESKINE: by Skip Hunt

This blog is a reinterpretation of a journal-styled travel journal, or "moleskine" where there's no intinerery or chronological order. Each post will have little bits of photos, travel vignettes/stories, a little poetry, etc. Sort of a book you flip through when you feel like escaping for a few moments. Doesn't matter if you flip to the front, middle, or end. Just flip through and dream of the road.

I'll have to give this more thought, but I will say... with me what you see is what you get.

Darjeeling ~ Monks

I photographed these young Tibetan monks at a temple near Darjeeling, India. Yeah, the same Darjeeling at the tea. Photos of the grounds and monks were supposed to be prohibited, but the oldest monk in the back of the group, spoke with one of the older monks, then asked me if I would like to take photos. I reluctantly agreed. ;-) And then he also unlocked the main temple for me to photograph the inside. Someone else arrived just after I'd finished shooting and was vehemently denied permission.

I still don't know why they made an exception for me. I didn't even ask. Just enjoyed the moment.
