Susan from The Well-seasoned cook has started a new photography event which I think is a brilliant idea! – Black and White Wednesday, which focuses on black and white culinary photos.
Now, this is fun and challenging.
During the past few days, I finally had the chance to go through some of my photos in the archive. Two of my favourite shots in Hanoi are here for your viewing pleasure. I edited the tone in the early photography style, since I remember seeing a lot of old photos from Hanoi back in that era.
Pic #1 – Luong Van Can Street. Food Stalls selling fresh wonton wrappers, pastry
Pic #2 – The old gate. I was wandering with Mr. B to find a famous cafe which turned out to be closed during the holiday period. (Never mind, I got this instead!)
(Okay, a bit of emotional message here. But you know this is the old Hanoi that I miss. I love the city to pieces, so much that Hanoi becomes a character for my wedding album. But I feel disconnected with its newer, more modern side. There is a selfish side of me which wants to hold on these memories of “my Hanoi” forever. Ahh. The sentiment)
