Photographer's Note

I'm afraid this one will not be easy to view but while reading one of Kev's story introducing the Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, I remembered I was humming another Floyd song, whilst shooting this precise photo in Koh Lipe.

Koh Lipe doesn't have any public lighting, why the hell would it? there's only one sand trail connecting "Sunlight beach" to "Pattaya beach", passing in front of Pooh's bar & restaurant : this path is therefore known internationally, by the name of Pooh's highway. A stay in Koh Lipe teaches you to live to the rythm of the sun, the moon and the stars, like we fools should never have stopped to.

A few wealthy villagers, who have their own house light (only billionaires have houselights), dwell on the side of the highway... so that we can almost share the villagers' life.
Coming back one night from Pooh's, I noticed that sweet scene of a mother talking to her child.
I thought we had all been that kid at some moment. Surrounded by the darkness, I felt like I was my soul looking at one of my past lives.

"Mother, do you think she's good enough
For me?
Mother, do you think she's dangerous
To me?
Mother will she tear your little boy apart?
Mother, will she break my heart?
...
Hush now baby, baby, don't you cry
Momma's gonna check out all your girlfriends for you
Momma won't let anyone dirty get through
Momma's gonna wait up until you get in
Momma will always find out where you've been
Momma's gonna keep Baby healthy and clean
Oooo Babe
Oooo Babe
Ooo Babe, you'll always be Baby to me."

Mother - Pink Floyd - The Wall.
