So as my plotted ideas of heading Vietnam has been shuttered, for a year, I still want to get some essence of Vietnamese culture in photographs. I still work and have about nineteen vacation days, I know first world issues, and will be in Texas and California this summer. So that said, I would have a smaller amount of days to be in Vietnam. And if you are heading all that way you should shoot for a month or more.
So hopefully I will have accumulated enough money, with more incoming money from my photography work, to quit my job and go. Or wait till I can just head there for a full month to head to Vietnam and photograph the life and food. Since Philadelphia, and the cities that I visit, have their own Vietnamese communities, I will start this project off with exploring those areas.
Surely nothing would compare, in terms of experiencing Vietnam, but this will be pretty close and suffice till then. I am still trying to get farms to let me photograph them and their workers, but, emailing and waiting is a slow game. So I am just going to work on a couple photography projects.
So that's what's going to go on for a little bit. If you want to see where I go to explore and eat, keep your eyes on this blog!
