Tina Manley raved about the coffee in Vietnam. She is posting on Pbase.com/ on her recent trip there. With her photos and the wonderful images posted in this thread, a visit to Vietnam seems compelling.

Leaf hat

Here are some more photos in the theme "Leaf Hat" started by Tuanvinh. Actually I've post these somewhere in RFF already, just to collect into this topic.

32. A street vendor like I mentioned in post 1. On the background is the collecting point for to be recycled stuffs.

33. Woman who sells things made from bamboo / sedge or broom such as: straw broom, brush, basket ...

34. Flowers seller

35. The "culture of streets" is quite prominent in Hanoi. As you can see those woman were washing vegetable on street.

Thanks Lem.

I really enjoy number 32. Hanoi is busy and my first few days there i feel overwhelmed by the density at every corner. But i guess you can always find the quite part.
Saw this group of students on a field trip to Hoan Kiem Lake (the lake in No 26 by Trung), i feel they represent quite well the young generation of Vietnam:

I like number 31 as well.
It is so typical of the grabbed street shot using an RF camera - in that the leg of the stool on left is cut off, the sign on upper right is cut off, this I find is common in that the framelines on most RF cameras don't give us precision compositions.
An SLR would of course frame it rightly y tidy, but then again that is why we love the RF cameras - in picture 31 the focus is quite rightly on the 2 ladies and their actions - not the edges of the frame. Well done, very nice indeed. Especially in that it's not cropped!

Quite interesting analysis about Rangefinder photo shoot, to be honest I never noticed that. Thank you for kind words!

Hi kiemchacsu and tuanvinh2000 oi,

Great pictures from Hanoi you are showing..I really enjoy your motifs and compositions – which captures the feeling of Hanoi very well..

I have been living here for 1,5 years now and its truly a very photografic city with a very openminded and (photo) friendly population..in addtion to being a very exiting city, Hanoi also has a very vibrent scene for anologue film photography which I really enjoy..I currently get my film developed at Zone 5 cafe at Tran Quoc Toan but let me know if you can recommend any other good places...

I have added to the pool of Hanoi film pics..they are all captured with either Konica Hexar or Mamiya 645..

Hi Demodres.

It's great that you can contribute to this thread also. I still remember your photos in my Ha Giang topic. Your photos really show Hanoi at close looks, on other way I would say that you approach Hanoi like a local but take photos with different point of views, interesting indeed. Keep them coming please!

For film developing, I get my C41 films developed at x-lab 15 Ng Đo Duy Anh. I prefer them to the lab you mentioned, worth a try. For bw I do it by myself.

May be we can meet and have a beer someday!

Hi Kiamchacsu oi - thanks for your kind words..taking pictures in beautiful and exciting Hanoi is a main hobby for me, and I really like exploring the city with my camera..still, I think your shots set the upper standard for displaying Hanoi via our cameras..:-) I also think you are right about the different approaches between a local and foreigner photographer, and it may show in the photos...I assume people think of me as a lost tourist when Im walking the streets taking photos, and its amazing how a few words of vietnamese can open doors and provide access to great scenes and shots..

And thanks for the tip for x-lap - will try it for my next c41 film development...I am for sure up for a beer and a photo chat...

Cheers, Andreas

Too bad can't join you guys for a beer and a chat.

This one is about children playground in the central area of the city. I realize that unlike what I grew up with, the children of today have to make do with just any open space as their playground like on tiny pavements on the less busy streets:

Some nice photos here. I can puke as I was in combat there. How nice to see them now, how terrible it was back then. I don't think any aliens would ever land here. They would be disgusted on how we live. We are animals. Turn on the news and see.
I am always amazed that there are a lot of folks here had/have relations with Vietnam. It's also very interesting to hear what people used to be the other side of the war think about it. Same things happended when I started thread about Ha Giang [link: http://www.rangefinderforum.com/foru...d.php?t=113447 ]Please keep comments come, I very happy to know and to learn new things.

I have been to Vietnam dozens of times on business trips as my company has an office there. I have never heard anyone there including friends, relatives (by way of my brother's in laws), co workers, employees, contractors, strangers, while drunk or sober ever mentioned even for a brief moment the "American war" or any sort of regret or hatred toward Americans. Is this an American thing keeping bringing back past conflicts over and over again? Earlier in this thread there was a photo of a child holding a plastic gun, something that could have been from any child in any country but the fact that it was Vietnam reminded the poster about the war. Truly bizarre.

You are completely right. Nowadays nobody looks the American with insulted eyes.

On the other hands, now we really look forward to cooperate with Americans in many sectors. The most recent attempt is the negotiation to join the TPP (Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement)

Even more, with the conflict between Vietnam and China when the Chinese located their movable oil rig HD 981 in Vietnam sea, Vietnamese even asked American for support. I am not going into details about these stuffs, you will find it online just after few searchs.

Wow, I can't believe I've never seen this thread.
Seeing how people live in the other side of the globe is what I appreciate the most about photography.

Keen *and* interested pair of eyes always produce interesting photos that, to me, speaks volumes even within a single image. And this thread is full of good examples of that.

Good job, Trung. Keep this up.

Thanks Will, as said in the 1st post, I am not ambitious to depict a city but only slices of it. The more slices I have the clearer picture of city I bring to you.

Sure that you are welcome to post here, hope to see more from you. In the end we will have different perspectives of a city and that's interesting.

What I was worried when I started the thread is my bias in depicting the rough sides of the cities. In fact, we have been changing a lot recent years though still is far behind in comparisions to EU, AU and other developed cities in Asia where I had chance to visit.I will try to capture more the developed/developing faces of city and do hope that folks can contribute their photos if any to have a more objective views.

This is Hanoi in 2008, only time I've been there, stayed for two weeks. Very interesting place, would like to visit again. This photo was made with Leica M6 and 35mm lens with Fuji Neopan 1600. Near Hoan Kiem. Two of the most noticeable aspects of Hanoi were that a large proportion of the population are young people, and how everyoone gets around on two wheels in quite a casual manner.

Very interesting photo Michael. In deed it says a lot of things about Hanoi, such as:- motobike is the main private transport- in 2008, wearing the helmet while driving motobike was not compulsory. It is now.- young folks tend to violate the traffic law quite often. In the picture you showed, 3 pax on a bike is illegal (maximum of 2)If you have chance to visit Hanoi now, you would be surprise how developed it is now. Please do share more photos you have.

I like this thread.
Thanks for sharing photos of Hanoi.
I strongly encourage you to capture as much of the daily life street scenes before modern development takes over.

I have a upcoming trip to Vietnam this year end and I am really looking forward to it.
