Confession-I'm a bit of a Buddhist monk/nun junkie when it comes to photography subjects. Even though I've been here for over 20 something years there is still something about their silhouette that appeals to my eye. Yes the robe colors can be very attractive but it goes way beyond that for me. Perhaps, it is a very visibly Asian signature in a modern Asia where traditional Asian clothing is less and less common. I think nowadays, they need to wear government approved ID card for public alms collecting(you can see hanging on neck).
A magical piece of music that always sounds fresh to me: Terry Riley:Rainbow in Curved Air
