Shining Son

This young man, a descendant from the Shan hill tribes of the Burmese/Thai border, was about to become a novice Monk during a festival known as "Poi sang long". I, along with Flickr-Friends Marty Johnston, and John Hulme got to witness some of the ceremony of the "ordination". It was truly a candid moment, as I was about 40 feet away (it's cropped). More to come.
