Through My Eyes

Timing was everything.

An Homage to Young Love (in Vietnam)

with 3 comments

I’ve finally converted some of the RAW photos I took during the trip.  Although I haven’t taken the time to experiment with these images in Photoshop, I’d like to show you a few that I took following lovebirds around Hoan Kiem lake in central Hanoi.

  3. Jeffrey, Thanks for the compliment. A pattern I noticed in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Singapore is that many young couples utilized the parks as special meeting places. It may have something to do with the fact that much of the youth (up until marriage) still live at home with their parents, thus the parks provide privacy in which they can be affectionate with one another and not have to face familial judgment.This lake in Hanoi was particularly popular with young people, as well as with tourists. I just wanted to photograph people mirroring the gestures or body language of their significant others…(it made me think of the popular belief that individuals start taking on the physical appearance of their better halves or people begin to resemble their pets, etc.).
