Who I Met in Bhutan

In Bhutan, I continued trying to take more portrait photos. Bhutanese people have been great models, and pleasant in front of cameras. Most of the people (and animal friends) are from Thimphu, Paro, Punakha, and the road in between. We traveled a fraction of this country, but it was a great six days, seeing happy faces.

I was going to explain more about this series of photos, but the photos will speak for themselves much better than what I have to say.

  1. Hi Juno,
    Great photos, I especially love the one of the kid in the Spiderman outfit and the Takin (what IS that? Looks like an inbred water buffalo). But they’re all fantastic.
    Thanks for having followed me on twitter!

  2. I like the one of the police man that doesn’t look like he was ready for a photo.
    Is it true that you have to apply to the Bhutanese embassy in India to get into Bhutan. I have found it hard to get any good information on how to actually GO to Bhutan.
