Hanoi Street Shoot - 1 day 10 pic

I went to Hanoi for my company trip and well, street shoot opportunity aplenty. I am going to chronicle Day 1, 3 and 4 of my trip with Day 2 being the Halong Bay series up in the Travel section. I will limit myself to 10 photos of each day to bring you the Hanoi flavour, hopefully.

Day 1

1. Welcome to Hanoi! The land of scooters and motorcycles


2. They are very serious about their scooters as there is a bike-wash! Bet you haven't seen one here before.


3. One thing about Hanoi is that people love the road side. Must be the narrow houses they have there, the roadside feels more spacious


4. Its not an easy life in Vietnam, so people sell their goods everywhere. This is what I call mobile market


5. Of course, selling it everywhere means you have to carry it everywhere


6. It can get tiring so you have to take a break


7. But Hanoi is developing fast, thanks to one man who made it possible - Mr Ho Chi Minh


8. Thats his final resting place and it is heavily guarded


9. Other than these guards, Vietnamese finest also keeps a close watch


10. But at the end of the day, no matter how hard life is, they still know how to take sit back and relax


All shots taken with Nikon D40 and 105mm. For more pictures of Hanoi on Day 1, visit my http://www.flickr.com/photos/nicklwc/sets/72157607159732009/

Day 2

1. Forgot that Day 2 has some none Halong Bay shots. On the way to Halong Bay, we went on a bridge that was built by the Soviet (if I recalled correctly)


2. On the way, we passed by a Vietnamese funeral and our guide stopped the bus for us to snap a few shots.


3. I found out there were two type of graves - Flower Grave


4. And also the Conventional Grave


5. It was raining in the morning and you can see all of them braving the rain


6. We stopped at a handicraft centre where under-privileged and handicapped kids are trained to produce handicraft for a living


7. They are like machines! Churning out piece after piece of wonderful art pieces


8. They can sew..


9. They can do jewelry


10. Cleaned and ready to put on display


After this, it was off to Halong Bay. My next post will be Hanoi Day 3
