Photographer's Note

As surely as the alarm of a natural clock, monsoon showers pour down over Luang Prabang, starting from 4PM for an hour on.

Where we westerner would pester against the rain, it looks like it has no effect on the quiet lao people except striking a time for looking away and beyond or for inner meditation...

Here at the corner of Luang Prabang's Hmong market, time has stopped again, everybody minds quietly his own business under the warm showers...
What is he thinking about? his next ride or a more profound meaning of life?...

I thought I was so close I would have disturbed his daydreaming but he didn't care at all for me hiding under my umbrella.. I would have liked further shots but the way I didn't exist almost paralyzed me... anyway, my umbrella was useless against frozen time.

This one is quite difficult to explain as i see it : I'm not sure it's an image purely but most surely a capture about time. Nothing to do about decisive moments or sorts, just thick raw time...
