I have a lot of favorite images from my Vietnam trip. I mean a LOT. But I think... just maybe... this one is my very favorite one.
I've had several folks ask me if I asked her to pose for me. I didn't. I don't know how I would even ask her. Liv and I were just walking to our cooking class, and I saw her on the other side of the street and fired off a couple pics of her. Completely oblivious to me taking her photo, she then snapped open that yellow fan, the same color as that wall behind her, and I think I might have actually gasped. I got exactly 1 photo of her with that fan... this photo. Then the insanely busy traffic crossed between us, and it was time to move on.
I love that she is wearing purple pants.
I love the grit of the setting.
I love that well-used cooking pot on the frame's left.
I love the shiney-ness of the goodies she's selling in contrast to her reality.
I love the potted plant.
I love this image and the memories it holds.
Okay, I think that's the last of the Vietnam pics. Looks like I should start planning my next trip!
