I like entropy, things that are fading or being weathered. This is from Pakse, and I don't know where it was pointing to.
More interesting decay. Also from Pakse; Laos used to be occupied by the French, so you have these odd colonial facades all over the place.
Monks with umbrellas in Pakse. In Buddhism, every man is encouraged to become a monk to bring merit to his family -- he can be a monk for as short a time as a week, even. I think this is why people don't appear as overly solicitous towards their "clergy" here; if that holy guy is your cousin Larry, it's hard to be all, "Your worshipfulness!"
Sunset from the railroad bridge in Don Khon, Si Phan Don. I guess it's kind of okay, if you like things that are GREAT.
View from my hammock on Don Khon. See that black speck mid-photo? The next shot is an enlargement, if you will.
