On the route between Vang Vieng and Ventiane. I won Best B & W Image in a gallery competition, and made 5 sales from that (based more on the "1st Place" award rather than anything else . . . I thought I had submitted 3 better images). :-) One of those buyers hung the photo in her office, and I made 3 more sales from people who saw it there.
