Circle of life

An image took during my last visit to Lhasa, Tibet. The trip started from Chengdu, Sichuan, slowly climbing the way through cascades of mountains in a Mitsubishi Pajero Jeep to arrive Lhasa, it was a June summer day, nice sun shine, somewhat dusty, but what a people what a city. One must visit here by himself to comprehend how many people lively solely for a religious purpose, and live by practicing it. As a visitor, it is touching, and it is truly a magic.
The white wall is just under the holistic Potala Palace, where pilgrims from all over Tibet come to circle the palace before their entrance.
Life is simple here, people do things for what they believe, back in more civilized world, in the city, many people do things they don't believe but just make living and you wondered.
I made this shot with a Leica M8 mounted with the Summicron-M 28/2 Asph. It is a shot to remember.
