Wanderlust #5: Vietnam

WRITTEN BY: Elwin  07/08/2012 14:54

Hello there!

For this installation of the Wanderlust series, we feature Vietnam!

 

Here, I used my Pentax MX (see Wanderlust #1) and my LC-A+. A healthy variety of film was used over 8 days of backpacking. 

 

Starting from Hanoi, I travelled to see the great Halong Bay, back to Hanoi. Then Southward bound to Hue, Nha Trang and finally Saigon.

 

I'll let the pictures do the talking, in chronological order.

Sending film for processing back home at Peek!

 

There is no lack of subjects for street photography in Vietnam. Street cafes and snacks are a staple in almost every city I visited.

 

Overcrowding in the cities means the roads are packed with motorbikes during rush hours.

 

These commuters make interesting subjects due to their ability to multitask while riding as well as transporting bulky goods with a general disrespect for traffic regulations.

 

Fantastic food, scenery, great for photography and cheap too!

 

So what are you waiting for?

Book a ticket, grab your camera and wander.
