One of the first things we did in Bhutan was to visit a nunnery. It’s one of just a few in the country, and it’s a small one. That day there wasn’t much going on, but a few nuns were going about their daily routines. This woman was on her way to do her studies and as I saw her walk through the screen door, I asked if I could make a picture of her through the screen. She was kind enough to say yes. I love the direct look in her eyes, and the way the light fell across her face. She holds her sanskrit prayers in her arms. It was the beginning of a lot of ‘gifts’ I/we’d receive on this trip.
