VIETNAM 2013 #88

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
The village is built along the river Lon which flows into the South China Sea and Gulf of Thailand. Fishing is the main source of revenue for the people of Dat Mui.

Here is the start of a new series of photos taken in a workshop where fishing nets are repaired. Ten women were busy working sitting on the floor, chatting away and laughing.

They gave me permission to take some photos. A street seller came along selling some food. I bought various things to eat as it was lunchtime, we had lunch together. A simple but amazing moment in my trip to the Mekong Delta region.

The close up of the young lady is very beautiful Jean-Noel and V2 gives a view of the work place - two really excellent shots.

Your model looks so serene at her chores, I would imagine this is a real skill. It is interesting to see the whole picture. Lucky you to be able to share a slice of their life.

Sounds like an interesting series in store for our perusal, JNC: love the concentration on the girl's face as she gies about her repairing, and the surroundings allow a glimpse into the conditions in which she toils away.
Two excellent shots, so well exposed and captured, of course, in fine detail.
