Buddhist Monks with Tourist

Walking down the steps from the top of Wat Saket I came across this exchange. The three men in orange are Buddhist Monks and the man talking to them was obviously a tourist. It was a quick snap shot that tells a story. Once captured I stopped for a second to watch the exchange.

At first it appear that the tourist wanted a photograph with a monk. It turned out that the tourist was the photographer. It was the monks who wanted their photographs taken. Notice how the tourists camera is over his shoulder and the Monks are passing their cameras to him to have their photograph taken together. Wat Saket on the Golden Mount is one of Bangkok’s most famous Buddhist temples and obviously very important to these men.
