This close-up of Tibetan prayer flags was taken while we were on an excursion into the Tibetan countryside near Xiahe, China. The flags themselves are surprisingly made from cheap, Chinese produced, synthetic fabric which feels like it came from the dollar store. Seeing them all over the place, and feeling the energy of the land was wonderful. Getting close and seeing they were synthetic was a touch ironic.
