Fotoeins Friday: RTW10, twenty-six

10 years ago, I began an around-the-world (RTW) journey lasting 389 consecutive days, from 24 December 2011 to 15 January 2013 inclusive.

26 June 2012.

I’m spending a few days in southern Vietnam with a base out of Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC). On a day trip from HCMC to the area around Mỹ Tho, I’m on one of the islands in the Mekong river delta. I’m on a horse-drawn cart where a boat on the other side of the island will take me to the next destination in the delta. Unfortunately, I don’t speak any Vietnamese: I simply shrug, I nod and smile, and I follow. But one thing is clear: there’s a perfect alliance of measured movement among human, horse, bicycle, and motorcycle on this narrow paved road.

I made the image on 26 Jun 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/250-sec, f/8, ISO100, and 18mm focal length (29mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as
