Unabashed smile

Photo and caption by Ti-Jen Wang

As I was about to leave the Tibetan monastery my group just visited, we crossed path with some Tibetan youth carrying straws for renovation work done on one of the temples. At the very instant my camera turned on, a kid in red baseball cap walked right in front of my lens and flashed a brilliant smile with no strings attached. Instinctively, I pressed down on the shutter to capture this moment.

Location: Lasa capital city of Tibet
