One Monk's Evening Shower

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Christopher Martin

A young Burmese monk showers in a monastery in Mandalay. The sunlight falling on his shoulder caught the droplets as the water fell and turned them into a spray of diamonds. This boy was very approachable. As he dried off before heading back to evening prayer, he enjoyed looking at these images on the camera's screen.

Location: Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma), Southeast Asia
