HOA LU (2)

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
Thank you for your comments on yesterdayís photos. Pleased to see some people looked at the four photos.

On the way to the ancient Citadel and temples, I came across this nice man on his bike. He was very pleased to stop and have his photo taken. Itís interesting to see that the French beret is still worn by the older generation.

Hoping youíll enjoy these photos.

All comments welcome.
Have a nice day,
Jean-NoŽl

V1 is a fine portrait - I especially like the little bunch of flowers in his beret! A. A

I like both, although V2 gives more context to the character, although I'm not sure the central composition makes the best use of the background detail.

There was no time to move around the man and take a variation of shots. I only took 2 photos while he stopped to let me take a photo and I got what I wanted. JNC

What an interesting character...I like the second picture best because he looks so gentle and fragile alongside his bike. Thought it was wine in his basket but on looking large it's just a bottle of oil I think.

Must be a bottle of oil as wine is a bit of a luxury and he does not look like is well off.
