Luang Prabang Monk

Peek-A-Boo Monk

Wandering down Sisavangvong Road in Luang Prabang, we hit a side street that led down to the Nam King and decided to go walk along the river. But then ran across Wat Siphouthabath on the way. A short but steep set of stairs led up to the wat, the complex of which was far more extensive than it appeared from the road. At the far end, a small handful of classrooms teemed with novice monks, just finishing their morning lessons.

Within minutes there were more monks to shoot than I’d ever could have wished for. I got some great photos, but this one is a favorite. I’m not sure why this little guy needed to redress himself before heading out for lunch, but it made for a nice switch-up on the ‘monk robe through shuttered window’ shot.
