Vietnam is the perfect place for street photography. Friendly people going about their business make great subjects, and happy to have their photos taken! The streets of Hoi An take you back to another time. Aside from the bustling motorbikes and street lights at night, the city has changed very little over the years. Almost all the food was either caught, grown, or processed in the local area. Everything was fresh, delicious, and so inexpensive! Unfortunately, we pay a small fortune for natural and organic foods back home… Vietnamese show us how it should be.
All photos made with my trusty Leica M3 camera and Summicron 35mm f2.0 lens. I used Kodak Trix 400 film, developed in Ilford DDX (1:4 dilution). No autofocus, no light meter, no electronics, and no batteries. Just your eyes, brain, and lots of imagination. Free yourself from technology to add some balance to your life, you’ll be amazed what you can create!
