27 June 2012.
Bến Thành Market, Lê Lợi, Bến Thành, Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon).
After strolling the streets of Central Saigon at night, one of your experiences should include eating out. That doesn’t mean eating in the cool confines of an air-conditioned restaurant. “Eating out” means you’re on the streets, sitting on plastic stools, and surrounded by residents happily scarfing down their meal. Check out the grilled meats and seafood of all kinds, shapes, and sizes: point and choose, sit and wait, sip on a cold beer or a refreshing fruit smoothie, and enjoy the food as it’s prepared and when it’s served.
The weather might be too hot, too humid, and you might be this close to wilting and melting into a puddle. But trust me; you should be patient and persevere.
Get low and comfortable at the plastic table: watch, listen, wait, smell, taste, and learn.
During my year-long RTW, I made the photo on 27 June 2012 with the Canon 450D, 18-55 kit-lens, and the following settings: 1/4-sec, f/8, ISO400, 25mm focal length (40mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-9UT.
