Luang Prabang Nth Laos

This is one of my favourite images. I spotted this old man at a street market in Luang Prabang Nth Laos. He was drinking something out of a plastic bag, probably a soya drink. By the jacket he is wearing I'd say he is ex-army. By his age he would have been around during communist revolution. Some of the fiercest fighting happened around Luang Prabang. I wonder what side he fought on. I only got one frame off on him before he vanished.
