I am an Australian expat living in the hills of Mae Hong Son province Thailand (please visit cavelodge.com). I photograph almost everything, above and below ground.

Terrific shot, John! Thank you for sharing this fascinating culture with us, otherwise we would never realize it existed!
Thais love to party, and are lots of fun.
Wonderful. Songkran is one of my favourite times here. Can be tough on the camera though :)
Certainly can. Last one i used a small olympus waterproof camera and had a great stress-free water riot….
really enjoyed looking through your portfolio and learning of your story,I have great memories of my time in mae hon son and chang mai……all the best
