Photo Duel: Elemental











Elemental: of, relating to, or being the basic or essential constituent of something.

HaNoi is comprised of many exciting and relatively strange qualities that all make this city such a remarkable place to be. Some of the most elemental of these traits are (in no particular order) pho, motorbikes, horns, buddhism, family, beer and optimism. But as any Hanoian will tell you the city and nation as we know it would not be possible if it weren’t for Uncle Ho, the most essential constituent of modern Vietnam. Pictured above is the mausoleum that honors him.

And don’t forget to check out Chasing Shadows for a different perspective.

  1. I love your comment as much as the photo that so well represents it .. I think your other calling besides photographing is writing – both beautifully demonstrated here. The color contrasts with the flag is perfect!
