Photographer's Note

Short moment on the old French Quarters in Ha Noi. The beggar was in his thoughts until started to dig the sack. While I looked at him, this motorcyclist stopped here, looked at me and drove away. I had my camera ready because wanted to have a shot of the beggar but then got a photo of both.

"Hanoiís French Quarter lies to the southeast of Hoan Kiem lake. In the late 19th century, when the French occupied Hanoi, they demolished many of the old Vietnamese buildings and replaced them with imposing French-style villas. As well as the architecture the area is characterised by wide tree-lined streets which, while still busy with traffic. The area is also home to some of Hanoiís fanciest restaurants and hotels".
