Photographer's Note

Watching river vendors going about their daily life on Thu Bon river is quite fascinating, a place by the quay side where I spent a whole morning scanning for photo opportunities. She was one of the river vendors and my prime zoomed up target shot, as she paddled her canoe very slowly past me. A profile portrait so immersed in the golden hard light amongst the bustling colourful sight.

I bet one can tell the profound & strong weathered hands have done their share of hard work throughout her life. Hands can be very emotive, and toiled workworn hands can tell so much more than faces and I believe they don't lie. This is a shot about gritty image with huge slice of reality that reflects the grittiness of her life and it tugs at the toughest of heartstrings. A hard life indeed and that's a fact,

but this courageous woman has my upmost respect....
