On the Streets of Saigon
There is perhaps no better place in the world to practice street photography than in Saigon. You see, everything in Saigon is on the street. Whether it is a coffee shop, a restaurant, a repair shop, a barber – it is all literally on the street. Even the transportation is on the street. People don’t drive in enclosed cars, they ride scooters everywhere. There are over 2 million scooters bustling around the city of Saigon. I went for a few days and took lots of pictures on the streets of Saigon. You can check out the whole gallery here – Streets of Saigon
