Rays of Hope
Category: Travel Portraits
Photo and caption by Michelle Lam
This photo was taken in Mongar, Bhutan in 2012. The old lady in the photo was cooking ARA, their local rice wine, to prepare themselves for the winter. The smoke from the kitchen filled their old hut with smoke. With the sunlight penetrating through a hole from the ceiling, it seems like rays of hope from heaven was falling onto this poor family.
Location: Mongar, Bhutan
