The Men of Ho Chi Minh City

Last Month, my wife and I went on vacation.  We went to Vietnam and Thailand.  We visited Ho Chi Minh City, Bangkok, Hanoi, Nha Trang, and Dalat.  I never really wanted to go to Vietnam until I saw my brother’s street photos from his trip to Vietnam last year.  Ever since I got into street photography, I want to travel more and explore new places.  I picked up a Ricoh GR for my street photography.  It’s small, compact and the images are awesome, especially the black and white.

Our first stop was Ho Chi Minh City.  I was told, when shooting street photography I should to try to focus on one thing when walking the streets and only shoot that.  One of  the subjects I decided to focus on, were the motorcycle taxi drivers.  Almost everywhere I turned I saw them sitting on their motorcycle waiting for customers.

It was awesome to see how many ways they can sit on their motorcycles.  Sometimes they’re  a bit shy.

When they’re not shy, they’re just really comfortable, or just had a long day.

Walking around with my little workhorse, The Ricoh GR, makes capturing pictures like these so easy and fun.  It’s so convenient and I love the quality of the photos that I get from this little camera.  It allowed me to capture these awesome moments as my wife and I explored the city.  Check out Ho Chi Minh City if you ever visit Vietnam.  Nha Trang and Ho Chi Minh City is a must!
