As much as I’ve neglected this blog over the past few months, I feel as if I’ve neglected Vietnam even more. Work and travel and website redesigns and life in general have taken away most of my spare time, and I’ve also felt a bit lost for words, or at least meaningful words, and pictures. It’s not necessarily photographer’s block, as I’m shooting now more than ever, but it has left me a bit tired at the end of the day. Case in point: these pictures were taken several months ago.
I’ve spoken before about how beautiful Con Dao Island is, in southern Vietnam, but it warrants being mentioned again. Aside from, or rather along with, Ha Giang, in the northern mountains, it’s easily one of the most serene and pristine places I’ve traveled to within the country. I went there on assignment for a few magazines and to work for the recently-opened Six Senses Con Dao Resort. These photographs were all taken at the resort, over the course of two days. It was one of the nicest hotels I’ve ever stayed in. I can’t wait to get back.
