My eye, right back at me

On the steps with young monks, Labrang Si monastery, Xiahe, Gansu Province, The People's Republic of China
I give my camera to a young monk
Without words, show him the basics
He steps away
Points my eye right back at me
And snaps a perfect moment

It occurs to me… Sometimes
The best way to see ourselves
Is to hand our vision to someone else
And let them tell us what they see
