Photographer's Note

Sunday is market day in Bac Ha, which is the occasion for the local ethnics, Flower Hmong, to gather in huge crowds to exchange the latest news, shop and eat lunch.

This gentleman was spotted having a puff of the local 'tobacco' following a hearty lunch, but when he had extended his drag, his facial expression indicated a nicotine overdose as his eyes closed firmly leaving him with an unpleasant stinging sensation! Pain or pleasure one wonders?

Unsharp filter applied, then resized and framed.

Comments, remarks, observations and any workshops invited.
