In the kitchen
I took this picture in Bac Ha, but it didn’t seem to fit in my earlier post, as it was taken on one of the side streets, rather than in the market. It’s not the sharpest picture I’ve ever taken, but I like it, so I’m posting it on its own here.
She was making rice noodles in a tiny street-side kitchen in the late afternoon. I liked the way she was lit by the fading sunlight outside, and I liked her style. Her slightly incongruous black suit jacket made a great contrast to the bright colours worn by the Flower Hmong market traders elsewhere in town.

The wonderful colors remind me of Rembrandt.
Wow, what a compliment. Thank you.
i am agree with you! beautiful picture
Love the quiet dignity of this photograph.
Just STUNNING !! Wonderfully taken… 🙂
wonderful play of shadow and light. looks almost like a painting. actually im not a big fan of imitating painting on photos, but somehow i can see you didnt try to do it, it went naturally itself. definitely please take my words as compliment 🙂
Beautiful. I like the blurred hand & ladle, & her face is plenty sharp enough – what a profile – and she does have a certain bearing – graceful curved forhead & lovely hands – the background was perfect – her formal jacket does look unusual in the context. You really have a fantastic eye, and happily, skills to match.
