Ho Chi Minh was looked upon as the father of modern Viet Nam. His remains are lovingly stored within this mausoleum. There are guards & soldiers on sentry duty. All bags & hats must be left at reception, & no walking on the lawns is allowed.
Taken on an overcast day.

Strange quality you've got for this one Chris. It looks like one of those soviet era postcards that you used to be able to get in Eastern Europe, and a very appropriate style for the subject.

Tu nous fais voyager tous les jours dans des pays différents. C'est agréable et très intéressant. Toujours de beaux documents comme cette photo aujourd'hui d'un monument culte au Vietnam.
Le ciel nébuleux fait bien ressortir la silhouette de l'édifice. Très bon cadrage.
Bien vu !

this is an impressive monument, it's hard to comment this picture, are you sure the father of modern vietnam was communist, it's looks more an old egyptian king !

We can see here everybody feels the need to keep the remains of these famous persons, be they egyptian pharaohs or communist emperors... INteresting also the people already forming a line before entering the mausoleum.
Have a nice day,

Interesting documentary-type of shot of the folks striding in front of the mausoleum. Not exactly a pretty building and the photo looks, like Richard put it, more like an authorized postcard - but that makes it even more suitable for TE, I think. Good shot.

Interesting shot, Chris. I like the row of people in front of the mausoleum. Somehow the overcast sky works well here.

Bien sûr qu'Ho Chi Minh est le père du Viet-Nam actuel...
Mais je ne me hasarderais pas à le qualifier de "moderne"...
On peut dire au contraire que son dogmtisme a fait régresser le Viet-Nam puis l'a bloqué 60 ans durant..
