A young Monk, acting as a guard to prevent people and photographers from entering the area where the ceremony of sunning the tangkha is held in Tongren County of Huangnan. The monk is rather impolite, contrary to people’s perception that Monks are always soft-spoken and patient. As there is no security staff around, he assumes the tasks of a guard. And he succeeds.
Location: Wutun Temple, China
