Being a bit busy, on the road for 7 days doing the Mae Hong Song Loop by motorbike and having to deal with a crashed laptop, I wasn’t able to post the last pictures of the week timely. So a little late, I present the picture of the weeks 2 and 3.
This was shot during my first stay in Chiang Mai before starting the Mae Hong Song Loop. I walked around a local temple and all of a sudden got approached by a group of elementary school kids. They had the assignment to interview farang (foreigners) in order to practice their English. They were so funny and especially the little one in the middle was quiet witty. I had a good time with them and complimented them on their very good English. In the end I asked for a picture and this is how it turned out.
The next one was shot during my motorbike tour. At Cave Lodge I went to visit a local Karen village with Marie, a french photographer from Paris. She wanted to get a few portraits of the villagers for a possible future exhibition. Since my portrait skills are rather limited, I spontaneously decided to come with her. We had a great time in the village. everyone was very kind and welcoming. We came across a local village shop, where this lady was sitting. She was very beautiful and wore a colorful traditional dress. She really liked having pictures taken and even wanted one together with Marie. We told her in Thai that she looks very beautiful which made her smile.
