Photo of the Day – Antique Junk Regatta – Ha Long Bay, VietnamI remember taking a boat tour of the mysterious Ha Long Bay back on our trip around the world in 2010. Sometimes we would run into traffic jams of boats all trying to pass between the same beautiful dramatic karst walls. This was one place where all of the other tourists didn’t really distract my attention from what was around me. None of the actual people were visible and all of the antique boats in the distance gave me this feeling that I had been transported back in time into some ancient Vietnamese boat race.
Photo of the Day – Vietnamese Food Transportation – Ha Long Bay, VietnamWhile on a tour of Ha Long Bay off the East Coast of Vietnam, I spotted this woman as she transported various fruits across a section of the bay. No driving or walking can really be done around the natural and man-made islands of Ha Long Bay making this style of commuting, regular.
There is something about this picture that I truly love, but I can’t seem to quite figure it out. I think it has something to do with the richness that is found in simplicity. This picture certainly displays simplicity and the richness can be found in this Vietnamese Lady’s hard work to deliver these fruits.
