A few hours in Hoi An

I was recently in Hoi An old town quite a lot for some photo workshops and weddings, but as the weather last week was terrible I was more busy trying to deal with a bad light rather than enjoying Hoi An.

Today, during a 2 hours private photo workshop with a lovely Kiwi lady, I really enjoyed myself! We spend one and a half hour walking through the market and around, and I think I just fell in love with Hoi An again.

The light was beautiful, that helped, but I found again the beauty and tranquillity that I stopped seeing some time ago. The streets are quite busy with tourists these days but the pedestrian area helps make Hoi An look out of nowhere.

We walked through the alleys and went to meet the people, who were extremely friendly every time. Even the people trying to sell things to all tourists were just happy having a chat with us and taking the time for a discussion.

So that’s it, I love Hoi An very much again, and I think I will be spending more time in the coming months shooting this beautiful old town.

    Salut Etienne! Pourquoi tu mets pas les exifs des photos?

      Serge, c’est vrai que je pourrais les mettre mais au vu de mes articles precedents, ca n’a pas bcp d’interet de savoir quelle vitesse ou ouverture ou ISO j’ai utilise. Car tout est une question de lumiere et composition 😉
