Vietnam mon amour

I’m having some rest days in South-East Asia. After 2 days in Bangkok, I’m now in Hanoi, North Vietnam. The main mean of transportation within the city are certainly motorbikes and crossing the street is a sport.

At night, youths gather in the streets to eat and drink, seating on small plastic stools. I hope to have the opportunity to spend more time with them in the coming days.

I really love low light photography. Before my arrival in Sudan, I use to spend a lot of time shooting in Melbourne streets at night. Unfortunately, with the security situation and restrictions in Darfur, I almost totally stopped taking pictures after sunset.
