I met this girl on the Kora (sacred path) around the Potala in Lhasa. I traded a photo of the Dalai Lama (illegal at the time) for a photo of her. Taken with an 8X10 inch view camera.

    Love the feel of 8x10.
    Must be tough carrying a view camera around in Tibet but it is definitely worth it!
