I often feel put off photographing tourist spots, just because of the volume of photos taken already and it just feels like a bit of a waste of time, trying to make something original and different, but then many people looking at my blog will never have seen this cathedral before anyway, so I decided to share these, my aim with these shots was to try and create something that has some texture and are just small glimpses of this building, with a bit more mystery, rather than the typical postcard full cathedral images people often take.
These are based on a very common sight here in Saigon, as there are so many motorbikes there are of course a lot of these mini bike garages, each one with a very unique character, but all equally as greasy as each other.
This set of images are based on a garage near my home.
I buy these pancakes (Bánh Tráng Nướng) pretty often, they are a kind of thick rice paper, with an egg, spring onions and some meat, pretty tasty!
Near to where I live, in Binh Thanh, in Saigon, there is a cafe which I regularly go for coffee, my local cafe, and there is this 2nd hand TV shop, I am fascinated by used and decaying things, which have gained a character through wear and tear, through use, weather and time, these things have a story.
