Mid way along the Mekong River

I can't believe that I'm blogging from Pak Beng! Check it out on any map, Pak Beng is the middle of nowhere, yet our hotel has internet access...this is amazing. Today we left Thailand and traveled on a private boat for about 7 hours. Pak Beng is our midway stop before arriving in Luang Prabang tomorrow afternoon.

In a small Laotian village west of here, these children in a window caught my attention due to their contemplative expressions. I shot these in color but felt that they would be more dramatic in black and white.

I'll blog more tomorrow and update things from Luang Prabang. Until then...enjoy.

Hi Karl,
What software did you use to convert these to black and white? Did you use any particular filters?
