Stepping back in Time at Luang Prabang




A day and a half to capture the soul of this ancient capital of Laos.
No time wasted, I walked along the riverbank and as the sun sets a jovial group of buddhist monks were in the river swimming,
not farther away, kids joyfully play in the water while they shiver, the last of the spring wind blows on them.
The water is of golden hue as the sun turns fiery, as if, giving its blessing to these peaceful dwellers.
A friendly smile, a gesture towards my camera, a nod and that heralds the start of a more intimate portrait,
may the subject be a child, an elder or a monk.
You woke up very early the following morning, shaking yourself of drowsiness as hundreds of monks in single row,
paraded to collect offerings from the multitude of religious people.
These are the reasons why I came, these images I share to you all... Life in Luang Prabang!
So please vote....


Thank you. Salamat po. Khob khun krap.
