[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In Hanoi's old town many of the street names include the word "Hang". These were the old specialist craft streets (much like the souks of the Middle East). Although a lot have been infiltrated by more modern shops many of these streets still retain plenty of their old character so are great places to wander looking with your camera.
A couple of streets from where we stayed is one full of hardware shops. Around the corner was this block, full of shops selling bamboo products, mainly for building such as ladders of for use as scaffolding.

Hello Ian
I can't remember ever seeing a bamboo shop in my travels. I can see there is a row of shops specialising in bamboo - definitely not for the tourist market! I would have liked to have seen more of the area to the left of the person in green. cheers, Marlene

Bonsoir Ian,
C'est une photo impressionnante. Tous ces bambous, c'est un genre de photo qu'on ne voit pas souvent. Le format vertical lui va très bien, et la jeune femme devant nous donne on ordre de grandeur intéressant. Bravo.


Hi Ian,
a very ordinary scene for the locals in Vietnam, and a very exotic one - for me :)
Excellent photo showing to us very many interesting details which surely tell us a lot about the place and teach us about the world!
best regards,
