Photographer's Note

Around the Royal Palate, the bonzes turn the back. They look at passing the motor bikes which flout the old stones.
In this time there, the royal palate was empty.
The king had fled in China.
Like an obsolete symbol, the palate accomodated nothing any more but icons and some old lanterns.

While the king rests, the monks turn the back on the past.

*****

Autour du Palais Royal, le bonzes tournent le dos.
Ils regardent passer les motos qui narguent les vieilles pierres.
En ce temps là, le palais royal était vide.
Le roi s'était enfui en Chine.
Comme un symbole désuet, le palais n'accueillait plus que des icônes et quelques vieilles lanternes.

Pendant que le roi se repose, les moines tournent le dos au passé.
