Prayer Pages

After a long day along the twisting National Highway, we arrived in Bumtang in time to visit an old temple in the city. The temple is one of my favorite in all of Bhutan, even though photography is forbidden within the temple itself. In one of the out buildings, in preparation for an upcoming festival, was a group of worshipers, including this man. Instead of focusing on the larger scene, I choose in this instance to drill into the details of the worship: the prayer book. In this instance, the prayer book is a collection of loose leaf papers, with the beautiful Dzongkha script imprinted in neat lines across each page. I believe this was taken with a Zeiss 50mm f/2 Plannar on a Sony NEX-7
