ABC Wednesday--"T" is for "Tibet"

I was intrigued by these Tibetan prayer flags, not only because I've hardly ever seen them here, but also because they're displayed around a dwelling way up on top of these stairs, like Lhasa is high in the Himalayas. The chain link fence that I had to photograph through symbolizes for me that Lhasa was once known as The Forbidden City.

A very thoughtful and symbolic photo for the letter T. The chain link fence just makes this shot.

I love reading about mountain climbing. No I would never do it myself, but i find it so interesting. The prayer flags reminded me of Mount Everest. Whenever you see pictures taken on the mountain, there are always prayer flags fluttering.

A nice tie-in to your cause. How very fascinating to find the flags there.

Excellent picture, you have a great eye!
I love these flags, something about their faded colors and the line of flags just really does it for me

It is somehow very poignant, especially the fence and the Forbidden City link.
