Girl in Vietnam

Posted on Apr 3, 2012 in Travel

I keep going back to my pictures from Vietnam because I often find them to be the most interesting pictures that I took in the last year.  I have learned that to take good pictures you need to put yourself in the right setting where you are sometimes a stranger. I like my pictures from Vietnam not only because they bring back good memories of visiting this country but also because the pictures were very different than the life that I live here. In this picture, I was walking in a small village in the hills and this girl and her mother came down from their hillside home to get some candy that we were passing out. What was sad is that she didn’t have much but just wanted a small piece of candy.  It makes you wish you could do more for them when you see somebody so innocent that can be helped with so little.
