I was walking through Chinatown in Singapore when I saw this monk bending over his meal at a food court. I was intrigued by the rolls on his neck but I didn't want to invade his personal space. I took this tight frame with my 125mm lens, which allowed me to zoom in close. It looks as if he's in front of a mirror, but that's actually another monk in front of him.
I particularly like this shot because of the clarity of detail, the visibility of those beautiful Buddhist robes, the sheen of the saffron fabric - and most of all the fact that you cannot see the faces of the two monks. Look carefully at their shaven heads, however, and you'll see a reflection of light on both of them. Some sort of divine blessing, perhaps.
