Photographer's Note

On my last day in Luang Prabang, it rained. Unsatisfied with my previous day's shots of the monks in their early morning rounds, I woke up early again and proceeded to the town center. I re-traced my steps the day before.

At around 9:00 a.m, it rained. I went to a sidewalk noodle shop and ate. I observed the locals passing by in front of me. I took some pictures. This was one of them. And for some unknown reason, this turned out to be one of my top favorites among all of my Luang Prabang shots. Maybe it was the context of this shot...the rain, the waiting, the desperation from my side because I was holed in on that noodle shop for 3 hours.

Then it was time to go back to my hotel. I had to be in the airport at 1:00. Flight will be at 2:00 pm. Luang Prabang is a place like no other. A few hours before my flight, I was still in the middle of the town taking pictures. No hassles, no hurry, no pressure. I REALLY love Luang Prabang.
