Bhutan is one of those countries that is perfect for the portrait or street photographer. The monks, the picturesque landscape and the rich dash of colours never let you know. And like any street photographer, I grabbed the opportunity to visit the weekly market in Thimphu that runs every week from Friday through Sunday.
In this market, vegetables, fruits, local produce, imported goods and typical tourist souvenirs are sold. The vegetable market is very well laid out and sells everything from chillies to lemon grass, cabbage to potatoes and more. It was during this exploration that I spotted this young monk having a simple contented look on his face and standing amidst the famous fiery red chillies of Bhutan.
