    I agree with the above comments. Great composition! I love how colorful she looks against the bland backdrop. I wonder what her prayers are at this moment in time.

    Nice splash of color in an otherwise monotone scene.

The story behind "Praying woman in Xigar, Tibet"

One hand turning the small prayerwheel, the other turning the beads, while humming “Om Mani Padme Hum”. So that’s triple blessing, while sitting on a nice chair parked in front of an ugly closed building.

Welcome to Tibet, land of prayers.. not sure if it will do any good, but definitely no harm & maybe it is the best she can do here in the dusty streets of middle-of-nowhere Xigar, Tibet.
