A random assortment of things I have seen and shot during the week.
Round up of the photos I’ve taken over the last couple of weeks. I seem to have gotten very lazy with photography recently, which I fully intend to rectify soon.
All photos taken in Hanoi; I’m hoping to do some road trips soon so I have some new places to shoot. I’d also like to start concentrating more on creating black and white images, taking photos of people and experimenting more with the style of my photos.

Here are some of the photos I’ve taken this week. I seem to have spent a lot of it chasing the perfect lighting down by the lake, drinking beer at the pool and discovering new Vietnamese street food. Oh, and teaching the odd child the English language. Summer makes me happy to be back in this city.
I took most of these out the back of my friend’s house. It amazes me that you can drive out of one of the most central areas of Hanoi for about 5 minutes and all of a sudden it feels like you’re in the middle of the country side. I’ve spent the last couple of days taking photos out there and I keep discovering new and amazing things like the umbrella garden. This city will never fail to surprise me.
All of these were taken with different sheer fabric placed over the lens. Love how it kinda looks like I used expired film and I’m definitely keen to experiment with this more. I found the photos were more successful with sheer cotton than polyester and that if you put your camera on a high F stop, you won’t see the weave of the fabric in the photos. Changing the white balance also affects the final colour of the photo almost as much as the colour of the fabric used.
