Village Pangmo, Lahaul & Spiti

Village Pangmo Spiti, District Lahaul & Spiti, H.P. August, 2000

Buying local dried black peas in a house in this surreal village, Dolma, after some silent deliberations, asked me to take her picture. She posed by this beautiful doorframe, eye on eye.

…and then she looked away at some nondescript point on the floor.

We see the beauty of the moment and aglow in it simple desires…longings of the Spiti girl, many of whom are ordained to become Buddhist nuns at age five.
