When we reached the Krueng village we found a few young children and this old man at home. Everyone else was busy working in the fields. The man was more a magnet for the camera than the children and was particularly proud of his watch, which in the first shot I had not included. This is shot two with watch!
(Shot with flash, no other choice)

I really like photos which tell me something about my/our race, about similarities, about differences. Despite some differences we are all the same after all. It is fine to be happy because of the wrist watch, it seems it could be perfectly enough. BTW - I like it too.
The way of siting and happiness. *****

That is a wonderful shot of a man with his quiet smile that can tell us so many storys of his past. Most storys are sad and tell you -
I'm living, that's the miracle after this bad times. Thanks a lot for showing.

Hi Elaine, a very wonderful and touching portrait - I like the colors and the compo - the watch is amazing -

Well, his big watch was indeed one of the first things that I noticed, apart from the man himself, of course. He's got a very nice pose this way, how can you make yourself as small as possible! Beautiful, his hands on his feet! Well seen.

I gotta tell you, the watch was the first thing I noticed. It's actually not a bad looking watch. Looks good on him. Honestly though, you could have moved back so the guy didn't have to crouch down to contortionist levels to fit into this little box here. Second thing I just noticed are those toenails...
