The first installment of Dueling Photo, a weekly collaboration with Chasing Shadows, where we will each interpret a set theme in our own way and post a photo that represents this. To start things off we decided on “The End” as a good beginning.
As I had this theme bouncing around my head for the last few days, I was constantly confronted with vivid examples of ends; students happily rushing out of class, an empty bowl of Pho Xao, running out of toilet paper and a dead man on the road who I saw on my way to Hoa Lo Prison to get this shot. Of course there are just as many examples of beginnings in this crazy city, and often they are tough to distinguish from the ends, but that is for another week. So here is how I saw The End.
