Lovely and intriguing human portraits... :)

And a welcome to Dr. Harout. Hope fate doesn't get tempted in the wrong way and he disappears again! :)

Thanks for sharing,

The ritual headwear of the monks are impressive ! :) One can even lose one's balance and even tip over on a rather windy day with an eccentric hat like this.

My younger cousin's high school rock band. He's the drummer.
FYI, that's not dandruff on his shirt. Those are flakes of wood from his drumsticks.

I tend to use the 500mm a lot in these outdoor performance situations. It gets me in close.
