View Full Version : Online gallery posted: Hoi An, Vietnam
It's been a while since posted my last gallery. I finally got some shooting done last month on a trip to Hoi An in Vietnam. You'll find the gallery here:
Your critiques, comments and questions are welcomed.
And since this is a photography forum, here are some technical notes on tools used:
- Leica M3
- Leica M2
- CV 40/1.4
- CV 21/4.0
- Kodak 400TX, souped in HC-110
Thanks for looking.
Thanks for the encouragement again Trevor.
I still have the CV 35/2.5 (in both Mk I and II versions). Those are excellent all-rounders.
I don't remember if you have the 40/1.4 as well. I'm starting to feel it's a much better potrait lens than an all-round shooter. I can't explain why -- it just feels completely different. The 35/2.5s are definitely sharper and crisp, but don't deliver the same personality.
Thank you Alan, you are a fine person letting us to see both your subject and your fine soul.
Thank you Ruben. You just made my day.
great shots! seeing as you used the single coated 40/1.4 i'm going to post a link to your site on a thread that has been ongoing on this forum for a few day if you don't mind?
Like this shot alot. A fine capture of the character of the location. :)
Simon: Sure, go right ahead.
Great shots. I was particularly bemused by number 16 in the Saigon series. It looks like a barber shop with an ear cleaning? If so, that is sure different from places I was at. You might find a guy with a small hole in the wall for a shop, or it might be a guy who stopped by on a motorcycle. And he didn't have a white frock, nor use a light to see better. Ear cleaning was done by feel only, thank you! Out of 4 years, I only spent 6 months in Saigon. Most of my time was in smaller places, mostly around villages.
Thanks for the memories.
Very inspiring. Thank you.
Thank you for sharing this gallery. I enjoyed it very much.
It shows that to have a lot of interesting pictures, one should have an interesting life! I'm inspired.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your kind comments.
Wonderful photos of Saigon!
Wonderful work, Alan. The work felt deeper than a lot of "just passing through" stuff I've seen from others in Saigon. Thanks!
