    Nice portrait. I really like having the second face.

    I fully agree. The man on his own would\'ve made a beautifully coloured picture, but with the second man/woman/his wife? on the background you can start to imagine how they happily share their lunch, jokes and laughter. All of a sudden it\'s no longer just a picture but a story instead. Two makes a crowd!

The story behind "Tibetan Farmer"

Another friendly man who came up to our car when we stopped on the dusty Friendship Highway. Scarred by the hard life and the seasonal change between strong UV light and bitter cold.
