Photographer's Note

Not that long ago, traveling by bicycle was the way to go here but now, with the influx of millions of inexpensive Honda knock-offs from China, $500 gets you a new 'motorbai'

A panning shot was about the traffic madness in Hanoi Old Quarter on this wet greyish day just after rain with a constant flow of 'motorbais' - a common mode of transport on the busy street. Honking is a norm, it's their habit to horn at anything that's on their way but accustomed to it and you will be oblivious of the honking and beeping of vehicles. It's absolute mayhem on every corner !!

For a cheap thrill and adventure, ride hop on the back of a motorbai-taxi and cruise around town for around a dollar.

It always feels a little like you’re taking your life into your own hands.......
