Photographer's Note

A visit to the perfume pagoda is very special. It starts with a tranquil boat ride along Yen River which really is part of the meditation as well. The sound of the water as the rowing boat moves slowly along is very meditative and the environment is very special with its impressive rocks surrounding you – even if you are there on misty days as I was.
When you get out of the boat, you walk along an alley of restaurants before you start the pilgrimage of a 3 hours climb. The pagoda itself is situated on the flank of the hills.
This lady was sitting on one of the benches at the outdoors restaurant where the hungry pilgrims get fed.
There was a peculiar dreaminess in her attitude that I liked, combined with nonchalance and even maybe a trace of indifference.

But the bad days turn their back and walk away while this lady is thinking of better days to come.
