This is a picture from one of my trips to Laos. This is a very poor village in the countryside outside Vientiane. It is a festival day and the monks are leading the village inhabitants in procession to the temple. After some chanting there was a meal shared by the whole village with dancing and fun. The people appeared poor but very happy.
Phra Sutat, the monk on the left, was a student of mine in Bangkok, now, as a monk with a university degree, he has become something of a village leader.

I'm allways glad to see these monks with the orange robe. Very nice.
Your former student is still so young ... maybe too young for a leader.
Nice picture of the festival.

Good PoV and a dynamic shot, lots of activity, but nicely focussed on teh two monks, pulling the shot together.
