Photographer's Note

A monk sits in quiet solitude awaiting the next person to give alms in Mae Hong Son, Thailand.

Mae Hong Son is located near the Thai- Burmese border, and I expected it to be a large city, much as Chiang Mai is. The monks are very warm and friendly in Mae Hong Son town, and it seems that very few visitors enjoy the temples here for some reason.

Mae Hong Son can be reached in 8 hours from Chiang Mai by bus, or an hour by air.
