Shot with a Canon 400D using a 17-85mm kit lens, with frozen and shaky hands.
Photograph of his Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Taken on his visit to Södertörn University College in Stockholm Sweden, in the spring of 2011. He held a speech entitled “A Human Approach to World Peace” for the lucky students and teachers at the school.
I waited outside several hours, on a chilly Swedish April morning, just to try and get a glimpse (and hopefully a photo) of His Holiness. He was escorted by assistants and guards, and on top of that I had to battle a crowd of people who were also waiting for him to depart. Apart from that, I had quite a clear view of the Dalai Lama for a couple of seconds.
