Old Man

This image was taken in a remote Hmong village in Chiangmai, northern Thailand.  Hmong, some regard them as the descendant of Mongol's, scattering among northern part of Thailand, beautiful people.
There are a few Hmong villages I visited often over the last 10 years or so, usually around New Year time that I have long enough holiday to drive around the northern region of Thailand.
The image was taken during Hmong's New year, a festival kind of celebration.  I was told the old man is over 90 years old, although I could not be sure but he sure looked rather aged. Sitting in front of a large wok as if he is proud of his own age, I snapped the image with a Canon 1Ds III + EF 85/1.2L.
