One of the pleasures to visit Hoi An, other than the splendid architecture and small town feeling, are the lively street scenes where so many things are going on. Among them, the street food vendors, selling fruits, veggies and ready to eat meals.
Although it was quite early, at a time when westerners would opt for croissants, pancakes, brioches, eggs and bacon, or a piece of bread with Nutella, vietnamese are ready for rice and meat, or the always very popular pho, a delicious noodle soup, no matter what the time of the day ( i have tried it more than once and soup is actually very good for breakfast!...).
In Montreal, the best pho is at Pho Lien on Côte-des-Neiges boulevard, a restaurant I used to go to 3 to 4 times a month to have their heavenly huge bowl of soup, the meal I miss the most from my hometown.... other than Schwartz's smoked meat.

Namaste my dear friend!
Do I see some pleasure in the old lady's face, in anticipation of the food being served? Obviously the quality of the food which is being served is well known to her.
The scene is beautifully depicted in the vertical frame..you close to the pillar, the subjects candid, not even aware of your existence, the French shutter windows & the strange hanging object (a lamp?)
PS : Warmest Wishes for the new year for you and your loved ones...

Une belle scène de rue au grand angle. On a la fois le contexte et l'action. L'éclairage doux et diffu à permis d'avoir des ombres peu marquées (important pour le visage sous le chapeau).

I've been there, a very charming small town in Vietnam. Yes, most historical buildings are in yellow just like that. This picture shows the vivid street scene in Hoi An, fabulous.

Une fois encore, un cadrage et une "mise en scène" parfaite de cette scène de vie des rues de Hoi An et une jolie lumière pour l'envelopper.
Belle note....un brin nostalgique!!

Hello Andre, Hoi nan is such a marvelous town and indeed one can observe many lovely scenes like this one. I liked pho even for breakfast but my favourite are always spring rolls.
