I was traveling through south east Asia this year and had heard a few people rave on about new years celebrations that take place in april. I was in luang prabang when the festival began, it was four days of total water fights. When I took this photo I facing the opposite direction when someone pointed over my shoulder, I had my finger on the trigger but not knowing what was coming for me I turned to meet this man throwing a small bucket of water at me. I was very lucky the water just missed and came out with a cool image. The man didn't realize i had a camera.
