The proper way to pass a pass...
1. Remove your hat.
2. Throw prayers out the window.
3. Shout for joy.
So Raul were these all prayers that were thrown out of the bus you were in, or they were all just there when you were driving through? Did you throw a prayer out if you don't mind me asking? i like how you've captured these prayers flying, but also left that small reminder of being in a bus. a picture says a thousand words!
This being a bus full of Tibetans, literally everyone on the bus threw prayers... and of course I did too, but that act cost me the picture I wanted of everyone hanging out of the bus, prayers flying from their hands.... oh well, sometimes you just have to enjoy the moment.

great photo! The prayers look alive and flying through the air, plus it seems like there were so many of them off in the distance, like a special place where paper can live and fly free.
