Location: Luang Prabang, Laos
In Theravada Buddhism, monks collect daily alms of food. In the early morning they set off walking barefoot around town to collect food in their large bowls.
People stand by the side of the street and place food in the monk’s bowls as a way to make merit.
This photo was taken in Luang Prabang, Laos, at about 7 am when the monks were out on a cloudy morning.
