Novice monk

Novice monk
This young novice monk was inside the door of a Buddhist temple. Outside, the entry wall had been painted over many years with layers of murals (see PiP1) while a large drum to summon worshippers was also there (PiP 2).

Thank you very much, Annalia. He came to the door of the temple where I took more images of him and another young monk, but the golden Buddha made this the one for me as it provided context.

Hi George

A very nice picture, with a fantastic mix of colours, especially the orange...

While he looks cam and collected, I can't help wondering his motivation to be there at that age..

Best Wishes, a nice weekend, and stay safe!!
