Photographer's Note

Shooting location: On Route 13 mountain road - somewhere between Muang Sing and Luang Namphta in Northern Laos.

Why so serious? Let's put a smile on the face!
She has nothing precious except her heartfelt grin that brightens my morning. A good genuine one big happy smile, full of life from a humble Ahka farmer with her famous identity; the distinctive eye-catching red head-dress and the traditional shoulder board head sling.

A simple street portrait, not particularly technically competent just a quick grab but was lucky enough to have my camera ready I thought worthy of recording. However I was not as shocked as she was when I showed her picture on the back of my camera, she laughed for ages and ages!!! Ahh the beauty of digital to help us communicate across languages.....

Not everyone's cup of tea perhaps..
