WeaverWeaverWeaver spinning on the porch of his home, Châu Dôc. An Giang, Vietnam. On the way back up this road we stopped to photograph an older couple spinning and weaving. Again, we just invited ourselves in and started shooting. Here also, we got some good material. (Minh did pay these folks a little something for putting up with us. 

 

We stopped for lunch supplies including iced coffee and took them back to the hotel to consume in our air-conditioned room. A very productive morning!

Young GirlYoung GirlPortrait of a young girl in her home, Châu Dôc. An Giang, Vietnam. On the way back we stopped by a Cham area, populated by people of Cambodian descent. We cruised up and down this one street searching for somebody making sugar from a particular type of palm tree. I was hot and willing to give up the hunt, but Minh was determined to find it. He finally did, and we invited ourselves in to their home to watch and photograph. It is a hot job with the fire and the steam coming off these 3 huge vats as the sap is getting boiled down. The light was amazing, and the steam in the background made for some very dramatic shots. I was very excited and think these were the best shots of the trip.

Lovely LiliesLovely LiliesWater lilies grow in pond, Châu Dôc. An Giang Province, Vietnam. When I photographed this image, I kept a somewhat narrow zone of focus to have the flowers in the background go soft in order to draw the viewer’s eye to the main subject.  As I worked this image in post-production, I wanted to give it an impressionist feel.
