"street" photography is maybe the hardest of all areas in photography. The photographer stalks his chosen environment where, essentially, nothing is happening - people are quietly going about their business - and yet has to select tiny moments when an image can be snatched which is more than the sum of its parts - fractions of a second often, where some fleeting coincidence of expression, gesture, positioning, and movement come together to create an instant which holds some undefinable meaning.
I went to Laos in 2007 and thought that, while it had viewer 'sights' than say Thailand or Myanmar, the experience and the interaction with the people was unsurpassed.
Previously I flew into Vientiane and made a loop, flying out of Luang Prabang, this time I chose a route going north through Chiang Rai, Thailand and then busing over the border and north as far as Muang Sing, close the the Chinese border and formerly the very center of the Golden Triangle drug trade.
Laos is a wonderful experience, interesting but relatively difficult travel on barely paved roads and shallow rivers.
