Violet Myrtle Flower (Hoa sim)
Violet is the color of fantasy, playfulness, impulsiveness, and dream states. However, Violet Huế is also one of the famous symbols of Huế Viet Nam with all of faithfulness, kind heart and profoundness…. Violet Myrtle Flower (Hoa sim) is the wild flower which we could see on the barren hills in Central Viet Nam. I took this shot on the Vong Canh Hill, Huế where they grew scattered under the pines and hustle in the Lau grass beside the poetic Perfume River... I hope that Hue will reserve effectively its cultural identity, its millennial traditions. Without action or help from provincial authorities, Vietnam is going to lose whole historic towns and heritages .
“Chiều hành quân qua những đồi sim
Những đồi sim, những đồi sim, đồi tím hoa sim
Tím cả chiều hoang biền biệt
Rồi mùa Thu trên những dòng sông
Những dòng sông, những dòng sông làn gió Thu sang”
“Trở lại Huế yêu lần theo ân tình câu hát ...
Tìm người con gái áo tím mộng mơ
Sông Hương tấp nập tìm răng được chừ,
Không nguôi kỷ niệm vòng tay học trò”
( Lữ Giang)

Thank you Huy for this beautiful flower, in France it's spring time but since the beginning of the afternoon it has been raining non stop...your shot is very representative of the season, but I think soff, the camera didn't focus on the right place...but I don't mind it, I like those beautiful colors, it is a good close up as well.
