Photographer's Note

Here's another one shot of the cute little boy I met in Lopburi Province in Thailand.

One person ask about the hair. I made some research and discovered that Thai parents during the olden times believed that there's a part of the head that is very fragile. Thus, they have to grow the hair to protect that spot. Even if the kid has to have a haircut, that spot shouldn't be cut. And so it grows and grows. At around the age of 8, there will be a ceremony to be conducted to go along with the cutting of that long hair. It also marks the intitiation of the kid into a more responsible childhood.

Last time, I also posted a picture of two kids on top of some animal. I didn't answer yet what the animal is. Click on the workshop to find out.
