PAINTED EYES

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
The painted eyes on the bow of the boats in Vietnam are believed to guide the fishermen and their vessels safely back home when there is a storm at sea.

Another photo from the series of the port of Mui Ne.

f13 1/100th zoom at 17mm

Many thanks for your continued support of my recent photos.

Hoping that the blue sea and sky as a backdrop to this colourful boat will also be to your liking.

Enjoy the evening,
Jean-NoŽl

Nice series, Jean-Noel, I always loved the sound of the motors these boats use, as they pass by in the night.
