I got myself a new little toy the other day: a Canon PowerShot S90 camera. A real looker. Slick and black with just a hint of Gaffer’s tape on the corners. I named her Sunshine, and took her out to the streets just two days ago for the first time (it’s been a busy few weeks).
It was a lot of fun. I found myself snapping away much more than I normally do, sticking the camera into nooks and crannies I wouldn’t have bothered with if I’d had a larger dSLR on me. It was almost like having new license to photograph all those cliches I walk by and ignore each day. Which was nice. Hence the above images.
Hanoi’s really a great place to take pictures, and it’s easy to forget how great it is just to wander the streets and take whatever images it is that life throws at you. Cliches exist for a reason, and it’s good to recognize them every now and then.
