The Bored Lama Boy at Hemis Monastery in Ladakh

The Bored Lama Boy at Hemis Monastery in Ladakh

This image was taken by me at Hemis Monastery near Leh in Ladakh on the occasion of their annual festival in June 2008. It had started raining on the day - totally unseasonal in this cold desert area, and despite the Lamas (Buddhist monks) being sure it never rains on the festival weekend - and everyone was waiting for the open air event to start. This Lama Boy seemed to be all bored - or contemplative - with nothing else to do. Click on the image for a larger view.
