Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by James Kao

Many consider the dzong at Punakha the most beautiful of the monasteries in Bhutan. It was while visiting here that I passed by these two young friends who were engaged in conversation. I quickly turned around and framed the shot, also capturing a third monk in the background shaking out his robe.

Location: Punakha Dzong, Bhutan
