Photographer's Note

First, my appologies for the poor quality of this photo. But on the other side, maybe the fuzziness and abstraction in this picture suits the subject? I will let you decide.

The photo is taken on my journey to China, me and my friends are very interested in Tibet and its struggle for freedom and found a Tibetan temple (Yong He Gong) in Beijing.
We were full of mixed feeling when we visited this temple. Tibetans were praying their (almost) forbidden religion and everywhere there was chinese guards with veapons in thir arms, walking around in the temple.
I think this temple is one of a few places in China where Tibetans still are allowed to practise their religion.
This lady was praying for a long while, so intense and with tears running down her cheeks. It was a very touching moment.

Tech stuff - developed in darkroom by me and then scanned on my poor scanner = low quality.
Please let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions on how to improve this.
Many thanks!
