Photographer's Note

This picture was taken in the Tagong grasslands in western Sichuan. This Tibetan lady is walking back home.

Note the vultures in the sky...

The wild west of Sichuan is distinctly Tibetan. This area once formed part of the Tibetan region of Amdo, (in)famous for its bandits and caravan-raiders. The local Khamba Tibetans are known as the most religious and war-like of all Tibetans. Many are nomads, living in black tents.

For more on the Tibetan people, culture and dilemma, please see my previous post.

Also this picture was posted while thinking about the earthquake victims. The epicenter was very close to where this picture was taken.
