Perhaps my favorite memory from my recent trip to Mongolia was our stop to help a family backup their home (their ger) and belongings in a rain storm. I thought we had stopped in order to get the photographic experience. But instead, as a comment on the true Mongolian giving, we stopped so that our guide and drivers could help. In fact, they shooed us back into the vans as it started to rain. I obediently complied but kept the door open and kept shooting. I wish I had been more stubborn and stayed out in the rain. None the less, I came back with some unique images and memories.
In addition, the wind-blown image of the wife rolling up the blue bedding received acceptance into the PhotoPlace Gallery on-line gallery for their January 2018 exhibit, The Decisive Moment, juror Sam Abell.
