Abstract Impressions of Hanoi
Some relatives saw my travel photos and they always like to ask the same questions: “How come I don’t see you inside the picture, in front of the view?”. My typical answer is that I am not photogenic, so don’t waste film or battery on me 🙂
I was merely attracted by the light passing the through the wooden windows inside the Museum of Literature.
Here is another rediculous picture to some. It was the string and thread used to make clothing.
This was one of the handicraft hang on the wall.
It was such moment that I was absorbed by these meaningless textures and colors that give me my moment of photo therapy. During the split second, it was only the abstract part of the subject, no me, no worry, no past, no future. Just the present moment.
I took the picture of these flowers leaning against a rough tree trunk on the main road. The locals thought this tourist must have gone crazy. I was attracted by the contrast of the textures. Meaningless.
I have lots more plain and meaningless photos. The above were the montage of few roof top that I shot. Just the pattern and the labors behind them that triggered my impulse to record them. One day, these kind of roof may no longer be seen my our future generation.
