Bong hoa dep

By Malc_V
Another shot taken at the Can Cau Saturday market in the mountains of North Vietnam.
This stunning little girl is also of the Flower H'Mong people, she was very shy of the camera and spent a lot of time hiding behind Mums back, i watched her for a while and decided to use my tele photo lens and try and get a shot from a short distance away,she turned and i grabbed this shot .... hope you like it.

The title is Vietnamese and means "Beautiful Flower".

Thanks for looking in.

Nice shot Malc - I see the little girl has the same top on as your H'Mong Lady.
So I take it that this is the traditional
costume of the H'Mong people.

really great shot Malc! she is a 'beautiful flower' for sure even tho she tried to hide from you - you have certainly captured her sweetness and innocence well - so beautiiful these people are! a friend of mine was a 'boat people' from Vietnam years back and is so thankful the women and children on her boat weren't attacked and raped/robbed by pirates of the sea as so many were back then ... she is safe now in Canada. Gorgeous image - thank you!

what a beautiful child. love that look of innocence, and that security blanket of having a mom close by. well captured.

The eyes of inquiring innocence. The native costume in this and the other portraits is spectacular.
