Halong Bridge at Night
Image by ethan.crowley
Wow, it’s been a VERY long time since I’ve uploaded anything to flickr. I’ve been back in the US now for almost six months, and haven’t posted a single shot since my arrival. Stateside life is busy compared to Asian life.
I’m hoping to work back into being involved in the flickr community over the next few weeks, despite the my busy-ness. There’s one problem with living in the US as a photographer– East Coast America is not a very exciting, photogenic place. Everything here has already been photographically explored from every conceivable angle. We shall see what I come up with.
In the meantime, I still have a backlog of some shots from my June trip to Vietnam which I’ll be posting.
Here’s a shot from Halong City up in North Vietnam. Behind me was the famous Halong Bay with hundreds of exquisite granite islands nestling in the seawater. I took a walk down the oceanside street that night with my sister to see the sights, after having toured the islands earlier that day. I’ll try to post a sea shot later. I really like the architectural beauty of this bridge, though.
It’s definitely not a perfect shot, a fact which is easily discernible when looked at large on blackt; In typical moronic fashion, I forgot to manually focus after I repositioned my tripod, so the photo’s slightly soft as a result (I know, what an idiot). Also, my little D40 doesn’t do a good job with low light– major graininess ensues.
For the record, it’s good to be back on Flickr.
