Travel Photography from Tibet:
One of the more striking things about traveling in Tibet is how the people look. In many countries we travel “local” people are often dresses in modern clothes. Even in far off mountains you might see a great scene, only to see a corporate brand emblazoned across a tshirt.
The one place you don’t, is Tibet. Even with a mass producing cheap clothes country like China, Tibetans in the countryside are still dressed in thick, woolen clothes. Almost as if from another age, this Tibetan boy shows the red cheeks people from this region are known for. A thick peaked hat, and a heavy coat.
The sun is shining, but the wind is cold. Clothes like this are purely for practical reasons.

what a cutie! the characteristic red cheeks are just so sweet on the kids there. Sun damage later in life, but for the moment, gorgeous.
