Through the Door

Through the Door

One of my all-time favorite images. I can't even remember where in Bhutan I captured this image, but I know it was a fleeting moment in time. This shot wasn't planned or staged, I just happened to be standing near this doorway when a young novice monk walked by, opened the door, and walked through it. I was using my Leica M7 film camera, and was able to get off two frames quickly before the monk was gone and the moment had passed. I'm glad I had slide film in the camera, as it helped captured the richness of the colors, the texture of the wood door, and the deep negative space in the shadows. Leica M7, Fuji Provia 100F.
