Without an H

Photography from south-east Asia by Jon Sanwell

Travels with my sister

It’s easy to become jaded and cynical about a place after you’ve lived there for a while. One of the great things about visits from friends and family is that you get to look at familiar sights with some fresh perspective. Things that you might have started to take for granted become interesting again. So nine days in Vietnam with my sister, as well as being an opportunity to spend some time with one of my favourite people, was a chance to remind myself about what drew me to Vietnam in the first place.

These pictures are from the few days that Kate and I spent in Dalat and Hanoi.

      Thank you! I think the lens I use most is my 24-105mm f/4, but if I could only have one, it would probably be my 50mm f/1.4, as it’s so much faster. I process my pictures in Lightroom 3.

    Great pictures! I am reading a fantastic book set in Vietnam called The Catfish and Mandala. Have you here read it?

    Very true. Family and friends would make us slow down again and earn some new perspective. Nice portraits and colorful food as always. I like the mix of objects, people and scenic photos in this set. It helps visualize your travel.
