Photographing people is not something that comes naturally to us, that's why most photographers start with landscapes. It's a safe subject without the added pressure and more importantly, you don't have to interact with people. But if you ever travel and experience a culture such as Tibet, how can you not include people in your photos. This image was a spur of the moment shot. Driving down the highway we notice a group of farmers harvesting their crops. We stopped off and chatted with them for bit. They were very friendly to us but also very curious. We kind of stared at each other not knowing what to do or say. I don't think they see very many foreigners. That tension was broken when one of the farmers offered up some homemade hooch. They poured the mysterious beverage into paper cups and passed them around. I was very skeptical seeing that the container used was an old Javex bleach bottle. I wouldn't say it was the best hooch I've had but we all had a laugh and the tension was broken. We hung around a bit longer, I squeezed off a few images of the farmers doing their thing and off we went down the road to explore further.
