Vietnamese boats in Hoi An

These traditional wooden boats are very photogenic, especially if guided by a Vietnamese woman with traditional conical hat. In Hoi An, along the river, you can spot many of them, and the best time to photograph. is the early morning, when there are only few tourists around and the light is soft and delicate.

For these photos I mounted, on the Leica M typ 262, the 90mm Elmarit f2.8, to better isolate the subject, eliminating any disturbance around. The green water of the river, as background, gave a sense of peace and balance to the scene. Also, I was on a bridge, and so I had no chance to get closer, but I had a point of view, from above, very nice.

Here we are in Luxembourg, from one of the most popular viewpoints, looking to the European district, called Kirchberg. I love how discreet is taking street photos with a Leica, so fast and silent!

Here are some behind the scene pics:
