Captured Images of Vietnam: Children, pure of joy & innocence


I recently traveled to Vietnam for two weeks and shot many photos of the usual suspects; main tourist attractions of each destination we visited. No doubt, the beauty of Halong Bay is stunning, captivating and one of the highlights of our trip.  While the busy streets of Saigon packed with thousands of motorbikes are intimidating; Hue presents many impressive tombs and pagoda along the Perfume River. The ancient town of Hoi An and scenic drive over Hai Van pass cannot be easily forgotten. And Sapa Mountains, surrounded by terraced rice fields are breathtaking. A visit to the sunday Bac Ha market presented many photographic opportunities, especially of the colorful and vibrant outfits of women from various minority hill tribes.

But my favorite ones are those of its people, finding them more fascinating. These shots were taken mostly candid, and stolen to capture the subject’s  facial expressions, feelings and emotions in that  very moment in time.

Children are one of my favorite subject, for they project pure joy and innocence.
