A budding Tibetan Beckam

    Newer Older

    I got some REALLY dirty looks after I mistakingly got in the way of a scoring opportunity for this shot. I met these boys in a wonderful tibetan monastary in Xiahe, northwestern China, in greater Tibet.

    This shot won Time Magazine's amateur photo of the year for 2006:

    DREASAN, B®U©E, malamuller, and 131 other people added this photo to their favorites.
