I ‘m so glad you liked the little boy, Kato, posted yesterday. It’s one of my favourite photos from my trip to Vietnam.
His mother is a very talented weaver in the village of Darahoa famous for its ethnic fabrics. She really knows how to mix the colours. The designs are traditional K’Ho. The loom is in itself a work of art.
I bought a beautiful tablecloth made from the same style of material she’s weaving at the time of the photo. She then sows the pieces together to make the tablecloth. She told me it takes a long time and I can believe her. I accepted the price she asked as I did not have the heart to bargain.
f6 1/30th sec zoom at 17mm ISO1600 (which explains the noise) natural indoor light no flash
I will discover in 2 weeks time if you will enjoy the photos as I am going to Scotland and visit some of the amazing places I saw on EPZ (Glencoe and Rannoch Moor) as well as Ardnamuchan.
Have a good fortnight and don’t forget to leave a comment if you have the time. Thank you very much.
All the best,
