Photographer's Note

Bangkok is probably the most modern (by "western" standars) city of this part of the planet, but pictures like this are very common not only inside a "complex" of temples like Wat Pho in this particular one, but also in everyday life out in the streets. Tens or even hundreds of thousands of young people walk in the streets of Bangkok wearing this deep orange monks' robe. That's happening because it is considered a great honour for every Thai family (no matter how wealthy of "modern") when their sons get to be Bhuddist monks, even for a period of few weeks.

Sorry, I lost EXIF data.
