At one monastery we had the opportunity to photograph
in the kitchens, very old, light beams from windows,
lots of steam
Often there was a charge for cameras &/or photography, after
a while I didn't bother because the results without a tripod
werent worth it. Other times I liked the blur.
I don't use flash because it doesn't look like that, & is even more intrusive.
Moved as I clicked, like it anyway,
near Rongbuk monastery, over 5000 metres.
By that time I was sleep deprived & lungs too small.
& oh, those mind blowing mountains !
It was the smallest monastery we saw, the most remote,
I liked it best. In winter it must be horrifyingly cold.
Its near the 1922 Everest Base Camp.
