Woman-child, aka Monkstress, Lhasa, Tibet
Sponsored by Bret Wassink of Oswego, N.Y.

Lhasa is rich with history and teaming with the religious Tibetans coming to worship.  I photographed an interesting old worshipper in front of one of the many temples, having him pose in front of some prayer wheels.  While stowing the gear away a young woman appeared from the temple and spoke in slow motion.  “Where - are - you - fum” she said, reading from an English phrase book.  She looked so childlike and innocent “I must capture her” I thought.  After much cajoling, giving up twice and asking the Lord for help, she finally agreed to be photographed with two other lady monks.  They chickened out and I got her by herself, as I'd originally wanted. She gave me enough time to take a couple of shots and bam, she went back inside the temple.  Photo session over.  I was glad to capture her as she was very very shy.  I would be willing to bet the farm that I was the first person to ever take her portrait.  Thank U Lord!  MS
