Jan 11, 2017 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: Lady on a motorcycle

Hue, Vietnam, taken on December 27, 2015

A review of my past photos reveals some rather interesting shots that I had forgotten about, some candid and unintentional, like this one. I must have quickly snapped this photo of two ladies on a motorcycle in Vietnam as I was passing by, without noticing the expression on the face of the lady in the back. Captions, anyone?

Jan 10, 2017 – [Tuesday] Black & White: By the fire

Sapa, Vietnam, taken on December 31, 2015

The trek to Sapa involved stopping by a local’s home to see what rural Vietnamese life is like. It was the cold rainy season and we were shivering all over upon entering the house – should have joined the party around the fire! (See the original photo in colour.)

Jan 07, 2017 – [Saturday] Is this what you call art? – Talking with a sculpture

Huzhou, China, taken on December 14, 2016

In Huzhou we saw this interesting sculpture of what seemed to be a food vendor in the old days, and my mom was certainly more fond of the man in the sculpture than were the rest of us. Her “interaction” with the sculpture actually seemed to make the entire scene come alive – how amusing!
