Wait, I'm not dressed yet!


Around Luang Prabang, Laos (May 2012). Spent a day walking around the countryside of Luang Prabang and hooked up with a couple of young monks in a small pagoda, Wat Xieng Leck. After an hour of practicing English and Lao we had our photo session. Took me another twenty minutes to get a real smile, but finally I caught this young man off-guard while he was joking with his friends and adjusting his dress. His name's Pong, he's twenty years old. And behind him, yes, that's a very bright, newly painted, white wall without any visible details.
