One picture from Cambodia and three from Saigon. All with my Leica
I meant to post this last week, but the National holiday caught me before I could. I spent the week in Anhui and had a great time. Yes, traveling in China during this week is stressful, but I went to a place that was not completely overrun by tourists. I went to a wedding, I saw thousands of crocodiles, I ate lots of food. Just the way a holiday should be.
These were all shot in HoiAn and Hanoi Vietnam. Like most tourists, when I was in HoiAn I had some clothing made. Picked up a tailored leather motorcycle jacket. It added a ton of weight to my backpack, but I knew that I was coming to the end of my trip so I decided to throw better judgement to the wind.
I recently started a new job. It came with a decent raise in salary. For those who don’t know, I am a watch nut. I have never had a truly great watch. I have had decent watches. Lately I have been thinking that I would like to get a nice watch. The one I have my eye on is a Logines. It clocks in at $1500. I am having trouble justifying the price because I would also like to get a Leica 50mm summicron. A new one. It is a bit more at about $2000. I can’t really get both. That would be absurd. Ahh what do I get?
I love to go to zoos. I love big animals that I don’t get to see in Canada. Growing up in Saskatoon, we didn’t have a zoo. We had the Forestry Farm. Occasionally they would have an exotic animal like a lion on loan, but usually it was a lot of Bison, Cows and other domestic animals.
The zoo in Beijing is sadly depressing. Many zoos are. Enclosures that are too small. Not enough stimulus for the animals. Shitty patrons who bang and yell and throw garbage. I need to go on a safari…
