Buddhist Monk at Boudhanath

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Christine Mead

I caught sight of this buddhist monk silently praying in the midst of the tourist traffic all around him at the Boudhanath Stupa. Carefully protected from the mid-morning sun, he was fully engrossed in his reading.

Location: Boudhanath, Kathmandu, Nepal
