Photographer's Note

Walking down the winding main street of the pleasant little town of Pak Beng early one morning, I came upon this scene. It must be unusual to find fish this size in this part of the Mekong, because it caused quite a stir among the locals. It was hard not to feel a little sorry for the trussed-up creature when they loaded it on the back of a truck and drove it away. It was still alive at that point.
