Life on the Khan River - 3

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps after a second review [?]

Nam Khan river. This is the third chapter in my story. No big suprise. What happened next is open to your imagination.....

I am not sure, why the man hit the water with his pole! He did it few times in the time I was able to see him from the bridge. Maybe, it is a macho thing.... like Tarzan beating his chest. This photo was in the 2012 August TTT contest. Placed 7.

Because I always come back to this shot when I visit your gallery, I think I must call it a favorite. It is both original and intriguing. I have a new interpretation - I think he is frustrated; maybe she brought him bad news from the market in the village?

Best, Mark

We will never know Mark!

But, these people are always calm and relaxed. To show emotion, shout or fight is extremely rare!

I know Thai people, Lao people are almost identical in their dealing with frustration.

It is never shown, it is just not cool!!!
