Mother and Child

As I said in the previous post, there is so much going on all around you in Hanoi that it’s pretty hard not to find interesting shots. I like to drive around on my motorbike looking for people and things to shoot and then, time permitting, pull up at a roadside café to sit down and drink my Vietnamese coffee while taking the occasional photo of passing traffic. That’s exactly what I was doing this late afternoon when I noticed this woman to my left smiling and talking with her friend – presumably about me since they kept looking at me. Using body language, I asked her if it was alright to take her photo and she said yes. I like this pic a lot, though it would have been slightly better if the woman in red hadn’t stood up just as I was pressing the shutter-release button.
