We walked along the river in peaceful Luang Prabang, the old capital of Laos. It was a peaceful amble, not even a stroll. There was a cool breeze coming off the river and the punters at the riverside cafes were quietly sipping their tea or afternoon cocktails. We turned a corner and above our heads, like birds chattering in the trees, we heard the giddy laughter of this group of young monks perfectly camouflaged between the yellow parapets, terracotta pots and flame-colored zinnias.

I think of monks as having to live a serious, contemplative life – I love the idea of these young boys sitting up on the roof chattering and giddy like the children that they still are – shatters my illusions of what I thought their life would be like. And the colours are great!!
Absolutely fabulous shot – speaks volumes!
