Today’s Photos – Luang Prabang, Laos, in Black and White

Umbrellas, Luang Prabang

I am pleased to introduce a new photo gallery: “Laung Prabang in Black and White.” Consisting of thirty-five of my best images created in a warm toned black and white, they were taken in and around this delightful Laotian town .

Luang Prabang, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in north central Laos, is one of the most charming and atmospheric small cities anywhere. Sitting at the confluence of the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers, LP is a medley of traditional Lao wooden houses and European architecture harkening back to the days when Laos was part of Indochine, the sprawling French colony.

Luang Prabang’s long and varied history and traditions dating back to the mid-fourteenth century makes it a photographer’s delight. The numerous Buddhist Temples, daily monks’ alms walks, varied architecture, or night markets… the opportunities are endless.

“Laung Prabang in Black and White” can be found by clicking here. Thank you for visiting and please let me know what you think.

  1. Your photos are great, Ron. I especially like the one of the guy mending his fishing net. 🙂

    1. Thanks. This is a collection of images I have wanted to create for some time and finally got it done. 🙂

  2. Gorgeous photos Ron! Can’t wait to see all this with my own eyes in December 🙂

    1. Thank you. Lynne and I really loved it there and I am sure you will too.

  3. I’m going to enjoy this, Rob because Luang Prabang is, as you say a fascinating mixture of east and west, and soooo inexorably tied to that river … 🙂

    1. It is a favorite of ours, especially Lynne, and on our “visit again” list. Thanks for your comments.

      1. I wouldn’t mind spending a wet season there, holing down and watching the river, the people … 🙂

        1. That would be the time to visit. It has become such a tourist destination.

          1. Yes, and too small for the number of tourists to be evenly distributed among the ‘native’ population so it seemed like a sort of theme park – I thought it was beautiful, the setting gorgeous, but as I said, in the wet maybe you could experience a more authentic Luang Prabang.
