    It helps to be a guy – they would be most uncomfortable if I were to ask, for instance (as would I be uncomfortable talking to a young monk)! You’ve gathered some tremendous captures to share with us, for which I’m grateful because I think most of those guys have tremendous faces and make marvellous sitters – especially when coupled with those temples.
