Vietnam First Look

On the street, Saigon

Here's one of my first shots from Vietnam, in Saigon. This shot really sums up my feelings about crossing the street in this city. It's almost a transcendental experience. You have to set aside your fear and your desire to make a run for it, calmly step into the road, and slowly make your way across with unwavering speed and determination. And the motorbikes flow around you and reform their pattern, like a river. There's something elegant about it, so long as you don't get hit.

Traveling up the coast on the Reunification Express; the trip did not disappoint

I'll be posting many shots from my time in Vietnam soon, keep an eye out.
