VIETNAM 2013 #59

Some images of the floating market, showing boats, goods and activities around the boats.

As depicted in my photos, people in Vietnam work really hard but for a Westerner, the rewards are not high as the earnings are about £65 (US$100) a month.

Most people just live day by day. They work one day in order to eat on that day. The next day they start all over again. They’re only paid for the work they do on that day. The amazing thing is that they’re not unhappy and do not grumble. They just get on with it because there is no other way to put food on the table.

Two very good images. I prefer V2 as it gives a better idea of the surrounding area and more of the atmosphere of the river side.


PS> You are right it certainly is a hard life for them.

A great image Jean-Noel, for me the longer shot seems to work better.
