This is why I am a Photographer!
From a photographer’s point of view the beauty of the market is the riot of colors from the clothing of the various ethnic hill tribe minorities, the most colorful being the Flower Hmong tribe.
I got up early in the morning and drove on a windy, muddy and dangerous mountain pass in the rain on a motorbike for over twenty kilometers. The bike nearly lost traction two times. Later, I was stopped by the local police for driving without a license and had to make a "donation." At the market I lugged around my camera equipment that weighs a ton in the heat and humidity. Harassed by aggressive sales ladies and flies, I was about to pack up and head back to my hotel when I saw this little boy on a motorbike just blowing bubbles in the wind without a care in the world.
This is why I am a photographer.
Stay tuned for more of my adventures in Southeast Asia.
