A model posed in the garden of Kinkakuji Shrine (Golden Pavilion). After I took this photo, someone told me she wasn’t a maiko (a young geisha-in-training), but just a young woman posing in traditional formal Japanese wear for a commercial.

Sapa School Girl’s Curious Mind

Filed under: — laurenz @ 5:53 pm



Sapa School Girl’s Curious Mind, originally uploaded by HRKVC.

The author: “Although Sapa means “sand village” in Chinese, Sapa is located within Vietnam and is home to a wealth of colorful, diverse hill tribes, who have steadfastly resisted integration into Vietnamese society and modern life. In fact, the hill tribes, including the Hmong, the Dao, and the Dai, comprise the majority of inhabitants in the area, outnumbering the Vietnamese who prefer the low lands. Sapa’s central market is a main gathering place for hill tribes from the surrounding villages. They congregate there not only to sell handicrafts, jewelry, orchids, mushrooms, and honey, but to also cultivate relations with other groups, play games, and perhaps find a sweetheart.”

Istlikal Cad. Istanbul, Turkey, originally uploaded by Damiel.

The photographer: “The story behind the picture is that in this street there is an old tram running. On this tram there were always small boys trying to get a free ride. I was standing on the rear platform and watched this boy fall off the tram, which runs in just walking speed, and the picture was taken while he were trying to catch up on the tram. Nothing is planned on the picture, just point and click, and try to avoid the direct sun. But it is one of my own favourites…”

Malawi n5, originally uploaded by babasteve.

Photographer’s comment: “It was before sunrise on Lake Malawi, Africa’s third largest freshwater lake. It runs deep - part of the Rift Vally fault. The pre-sunrise sky reflected blood red on the crystal waters of the lake. Villagers were already up, starting their daily chores. Here one woman helps her friend raise a bucket of water drawn from the lake. What a photogrpaher’s dream come true!”

Two women, Sam Sand Dunes

Two women, Sam Sand Dunes, originally uploaded by since1968.

The photographer writes:
“Women walking on Sam sand dunes outside Jaisalmer, India.
You never know when you’ll get a good picture. We were tired: tired of the sand, tired of the sun, tired of riding camels, and I was tired of taking pictures. Walking back to our tent I wanted to get one last look at a big sand dune. I turned around and these women were beautifully framed in the sky and the sand.
Part of the work is already done for you when you travel to Sam. People tend to walk along the ridges of the sand dunes because the sand is more tightly packed there than on the sides.”
