This photo was taken by Thomas Nevin from Naples, Florida.
"It was taken in the Grand Palace area of Bangkok as we were walking around three years ago. I saw the monk putting on his robe and took the picture; I did not realize it until I got home to examine the picture [that] I noticed the tattoo of 'LOVE' on his arm and how I got it perfectly. The orange robe and the contrasting face and arm made it an outstanding photograph.
I have been doing photography for many years. I have traveled extensively all my adult life taking at least two trips a year for many, many years. I have traveled basically all over the world."
