One thought on “Yurt life

  1. I feel like if I keep saying things like “wonderful,” it starts to sound bland. These are intimate and reflective and have a really distinct tone (compared, say, to the Filipino carnival post). The colors are warm and both soft and vibrant at the same time. I love “counting yuan” especially–it tells a story, as well as being strong in composition and color. And the woman praying is so subtle. It’s amazing how immediately recognizable prayer is–a slight inclination of the head, chin tucked as if looking inside, and the folded hands. Also nice how you left an open space in front of her for whoever she’s conversing with to occupy.
