Friday April 11th, 2014 - Ho Chi Minh City and the Markets

Ho Chi Minh City .... a very busy city and many photos to capture. We started this morning with a photo shoot with my friend Anthony Plus and the camera club here in the city. It was great to meet some of the local club photographers and have fun shooting a few images with a model in traditional costume.

We also spent time taking some photos in the post office and the cathedral. Later in the morning we went into the downtown district to visit the markets and then drove into the Chinese district and visited the Chinese Wholesale Market. You name it and want to buy in bulk this is the place to do it. We then wrapped up this morning my a walk around some of the busy streets that surround the market. We had some free time this afternoon to escape the heat and relax before heading out this evening for a trek around the city via Vespa Bikes, places to eat, drink and enjoy music, as this evenings fun.  

Tomorrow we will be spending time visiting the the children similar to what we did last time with the first group when we visiting Ho Chi Minh City. This time we will be taking snacks and other treats to the children. 

Enjoy the images from todays experiences and good night from Ho Chi Minh City.

James and Anthony Plus this morning when we joined the Ho Chi Minh City camera club for a photo shoot outside the post office.

Many wedding photos are shot at the Notre Dame Cathedral across from the post office. This usually happens about one month before the wedding.


This is what I call a well balanced diet!

Many things happening today, a group where making a movie in the square


You have to love this place, all of a sudden these girls got out of a van and started jumping and cheering on the sidewalk. Made for a great photo opportunity.


Then we visited the markets ... have you ever seen this much material?
