From my late afternoon photo walk about .......

There's a very attractive atmosphere of calm at Ban Huay Pamoa village by a small river, 15 km outside Vang Vieng when I spotted this woman doing traditional weaving in a small ramshackle wooden house-cum-workshops. Looked like she's concentrating hard and I could actually imagine how she went about her work but it's evidence of optimism, indeed she did appear comfortable, this is the sort that I really enjoy seeing as well as taking - someone getting on with the work in the natural surroundings.

The craft of weaving is practiced for generations with the help of family members, and this provides employment to a large number of farmers here for their extra income.

Human skills and crafts mellowed in time, and I hope she is able to weave some wonderful dreams for herself and her family....

Hello Abmdsudi,

A good daily life scene of the weaving and loom, with the motion blur contributing a feeling and mood of energy and dynamism. Superb tight framing and diffused light. Tfs!

Bonjour Abmdsudi

J'aime beaucoup l'effet du mouvement , à la fois du métier à tisser et à la fois de la dame qui le manipule et toujours avec des couleurs bien affirmées.




Hello abmdsudi,

Excellent everyday genre with the feel of motion.

Best Wishes,

Ciao Abmdsudi, beautiful daily life scene with womman at work, fantastic movie effect, splendid light and wonderful colors very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi dear Abmdsudi YTH

Another stunning shot! Your nice strategy, not focus on her but focus on yarns, is very very striking. Blurred lady is so tasty to make movemnet so vividly.

All the best and have a good day! Takero

A very nice scene, it is an old handicraft and these people need not only techmical skills but also a sense of beauty, and the yarn looks like hairs :)

Ciao Abmdsudi
eccellente colpo, il senso del movimento ci viene trasmesso in modo sottile, ma evidente.

Hello Abmdsudi,
This is a fine portrait of the weaver in action. I like how the color of her shirt stands out in the pastel background. 👍
