Photo of the Day (3/1/07)

There ought to be a whole photo gallery featuring nothing but monks using modern technology. I can’t tell you the number of times someone thought it necessary to snap a photo of a monk talking on a cell phone and then share it with the world. This is the first I’ve seen, however, of monks shooting themselves with a camera. What really makes the photo, however, is the wonderful orange of their tunics contrasting against the misty browns of Angkor Wat. The contrast is so startling it looks as though they’ve been artificially dropped into the photograph. I love it.

Congrats go out once again to LadyExpat who photographed monks photographing themselves and did a fantastic job of it.
