This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel
Young monks don sunglasses before dozens of butter lamps at Swayambhunath Stupa, a Buddhist temple in Kathmandu Valley. The gold-spired stupa is also known as the “Monkey Temple,” named for the population of rhesus monkeys that roam its grounds.
Photo Tip: Your subject doesn’t always have to be in the center of the frame and looking directly at the camera.
