Photographer's Note

.

This lady is about 70 years old. Subtract her youth years, she has been balancing her life this way for over half a century, non-stop. My co-workers saw this picture and they called it "Uphill Struggle". I like the name and stole it to post here to share with you. I took this a few hundred yards from the center of Hoi An Town where tourists traveled half the erath away to this community to... discover something old. Yes this is it, an old mean of transportation. As her life is a non-stop battle to survive, this woman has kept her fight and never left her battle front. She accepts her destiny exactly as described by Michel Tauriac, "The Vietnamese have a skillful art and method of hidding their misery behind a happy mask."
