Do the different color sashes have significance?
Ray: No significance at all, Elizabeth, but it does indicate "accessory insensitivity"!
Great shot and love the colors
Ray: It is easy to pick out the monks in a crowd, Hollie.

Wonderful crisp and colourful picture. They stand out in a crowd. (Tomorrow we celebrate Kingsday, a party for the country. The family name of our Royals is 'van Oranje', 'of Orange', everybody, us included will wear orange...
These monks would fit in perfect)
Ray: They would fit in well as supporters for your football team in Brazil in a couple of months, too, Astrid.

This is a nice crisp picture Ray... i like the shot with the Monks from the back... they seem humble....petersmile
Ray: Young guys...about 17-20 years old...but might have been monks for many years, Peter.

Orphan boys are often placed in monkhood at age 5 years, and can decide for themselves if they wish to leave after they turn 18...they have a High School graduation by then.
Astrid is right...all ready for our Kingsday tomorrow! How did you know, Ray? grin The one on the right has an "empire" waisteline. Hmmm. Wonder what HE'S thinking?

A very distinctive street scene Ray. No doubt they survive on hand outs and the making of industrial vats of merit
I take it they are carrying bags for donations of unwanted fairground prizes Ray
Very eye catching image Ray. My eye is also drawn to the construction in the rear of the image. It looks quite large.

I like the consonance and the difference of the three monks.

They look so young, but from what you say they have been preparing for many years
