    This type of popular singing with strong accents from the formerly Lao migrants who settled on the Issan plateau, North-East Thailand, is called Luk Thung, and is a mix of the indigenous Molam style singing and modern pop music, deserves better international recognition, as the skills the singer must have are truly of an unique style.
    In many ways, my favored accoutrement is that of the young woman on the right, which examplifies so much the seduction operated by western style clothes on thais, and yet, often designed, and worn as it is in Thailand, thai youth make it all their own.
    Because of that, mixed to the traditional, this picture contains much references to cultural life in Thailand nowadays.

    Marine: I didn't know you had been to Orissa - it was a favorite destination for me, along with Gujarat - because it's relatively unknown and unvisited. Where else did you go? Do you remember this lady's tribal affiliation? It's a very beautiful shot - with an obvious demure smile... c

    Nice moment shared with us.

    Now the critique: within your TE collection of U-bein photos, this one would profit for a tight cropping (under the hands), less bridge (we can see it in other photos) and focussing on some of the nice specifics of the scene, like the parallelism of the brown folded draperies, the hand-holding, which here is so in harmony with the scene, but barely noticeable.

    A slight timing change might have allowed to either get the one of the left reciprocate your attention like the others, or illustrate her shyness better. Here, she is just looking down.

    If impossible to take the 4th one out behind during the shoot, I would edit her out, filling in with foliage instead. Perfect example of shot that needs a few frames and a little attention to detail, to become more than the souvenir of a nice moment.

    PS: fun is over. Teacher is coming over soon. Not a minute too soon! :-)

    Marine: Great to hear from you again. I don't have a lot of time on TE - and I'll be getting busier - but it's very nice to stay in touch with old friends. Whatever happened to André: I have not heard from him via email, TE, or Facebook? I hope he is well....

    What did you do for the processing of this impressionist painting... Whatever you did; it's both psychedelic and very cool. Congrats.... more later,,,, :)
