Photo of a 17 year-old girl from the Yellow Lahu hilltribe (Lahu Shi Balah). Taken in Doi Mae Salong, Chiang Rai Province, Northern Thailand.
The Yellow Lahu are smallest Lahu minority found in Thailand. They originate from Southern China and Tibet. The other name for Lahu is 'Musur'. Other subgroups are the Red Lahu and the Black Lahu.
Little English is spoken. The younger Lahu can speak Thai while the older folks speak only Lahu Na, a soft tonal language from the Yi/Lolo branch of the Tibetan-Burmese linguistic group.

Another nice, simple portrait, that does no aim at saying too much, but still delivers plenty, with her gentle eye contact with the camera, the vibrant colors, and that little jade ring in hre necklace.

Very good use of fill-flash: lights the eyes; no shadows. Sharp like hell.
