One of the reasons why I went back to colour for my trip north was because of all the greens, yellows and reds I knew I’d come across. If yesterday’s post was all about the green and yellow, today’s is all about the red. I met this Red Dao (“zow”) mother and daughter in Ta Phin village, north of Sapa. The family was entertaining a local policeman with rice wine, and they invited me in to join them. The policeman didn’t want his picture taken, and I wasn’t going to argue with him, but the women of the house were happy to humour me. This shot was taken just inside the side entrance to the house, where they were nicely lit by the sunlight from outside.
