Put The Camera Down....

... but then quick, pick it back up again. Sometimes it just takes me a while to get into a photographic groove. I've learned to live in the moment, one of the hardest things for a photographer to change, when all natural instinct is to pick up the camera and shoot every single new experience. After a week of work and holiday in Vietnam it was only on the last day I felt the urge to capture some of what I'd enjoyed. And so very glad I did. It's a sensory overload of people, nature, culture, decay, development and decayed development. But here's a little taste of what I saw trundling through the villages around Hoi An and An Bang with @campianta. Of course I don't think we should always put the camera down, but a time and a place folks, a time and a place.
