Award Shortlist   


Yesterday I uploaded a series of photos depicting the hard life of people working on the Perfume River. This time it's mainly about living by the river and showing the way some Vietnamese people live.

The comfort we are used to is not to be seen there.

The photos were taken on the same day as yesterday's uploads but in the afternoon after the rain (except for the last one).

(f16 1/80th sec zoom at 70mm natural light crop + Photofiltre just a touch)

I appreciate your comments and hope you will like this new series.

Have a nice evening,

With your images from various rivers in Vietnam,you have hit the heart of the country. On the rivers everything is happening and the people u meet are kind and helpful.
Beautiful images,I love them.
Unfortunately,I was there under other circum stances.
