The monks and the girl

The monks and the girl
During the exposition -JAPÓN 4- I realized this photo was not uploaded onto my stream, so here you go

Some people asked me if I had told them to stand that way, but no, the buddhist monks were indeed performing the noon prayers when, very quietly, the little girl decided to join them.
Another interesting thing is that at a first look at these photos many other Japanese people thought this was shot in Tibet, but no, it was Koyasan in Wakayama, Japan.

Candid photo and taken with a point-and-shoot camera, about a year before I went DSLR.

Matthias Benkard, MjYj have particularly liked this photo

I share your style of shooting "Capturing as it is" I never direct nor instruct subjects to pose.
