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.
