Art, Creativity, Photography, Travel, Writing

At the beginning of each month Kat Sloma invites us to share a photo taken the previous month that really speaks to us in some way.

Earlier in March we went to Vietnam for the first time and I went on an early morning photography trip with a locally-based photographer and a small group of amateur photographers. We were hoping to wean ourselves off the automatic functions on our cameras and try our hands at taking photos of people. After taking photos in the fishing village we returned to base on a ferry boat. There was a young Vietnamese couple on the boat with a small baby. When they first got on the mother was still wearing her crash helmet and mask and the baby was all muffled up in a woolly hood and jacket. All of us photographers wanted to photograph the mother and child. As she got used to our attention and decided she was actually enjoying it, she removed her mask and gradually removed items of clothing from the baby so that we could photograph them. At the end she was smiling broadly and the ladies seated behind us thought it was all a great joke.
