Clean is God

New country - and here I have completely let my profession down. It's a cardinal sin not to write the name of the place, peoples names etc. down as a basic obligation for photo journalists. But I cannot recall the name of the town where I took this picture. And I never asked for the young mans name. We did see a lot of monasteries in both Thailand and not at least here in Burma. It almost became a joke, all the holy places in Burma, but you should not laugh of religion - or yes you should, but only at your own religion. And I am not a Buddhist. This monk is having his morning shower. The water was not as cold as his face tells. Big contrast in the colors. Like a traffic light, red, green, yellow. That's how we think, us photographers.
