I was intrigued by the  multiple layers of images projected on/through the shadecloth as the Village folks participated in their ancient rituals relating to the commencement of the rice growing season during the Songkran holiday.

I like the way pictures are visible in the shadows...
Ray: That effect certainly drew my lens, Larry.
Très jolie scène.
Ray: Je suis content que tu aimes ça, Martine.
Well seen, Ray, I find shadows intriguing...
Ray: Thank you, Frank...me too.

I suppose this is a form of religion as they invoke the gods of rice, and luck, and hope etc
Ray: In this Village, Chris, it seems to be a mix of several belief systems which may or may not embrace a god figure.

Excellent. I like the shadow figures very much; it would be fun ti guess the characters when seen not as shadows.
Ray: It certainly got my attention, Alan, and I did try to guess who the people were as they passed by.

I understand your fascination by this shadecloth - the rituals of the Village folks are wonderful.
Ray: I am fascinated by the beliefs and practices of the Village folks, Philine.
Well spotted, and well taken, Ray!
Ray: A generous comment, thank you, Tom.
A well seen picture Ray
Ray: It was a most striking phenomenon, Bill.
One of those right place, right time, images Ray.
Ray: I was just sitting quietly and watching the rituals, Brian, then became aware of this very strange projection on the sunshade.
Well seen, Ray!! Very nice!
Ray: Thank you, Elizabeth.
Very nicely done, a visual treat.
a wonderful documentary shot here, Ray.
