A visit to the park

Sunday morning. The mere words install expectations. A day off. All your worries evaporating as water droplets soaked up by the rising sun. Sundays are to be enjoyed. To recoup. To get out, and out we did go, to the park that is.

The park is already packed before even setting a foot inside. The motorbike attendant closed the entrance two bikes behind us. “It’s full. You have to park elsewhere.” Bikes are being turned around, except for one. He’s not having it. Walking longer to the park is not acceptable. His pleas bear fruit once the others have left, he gets the last spot.

Impromptu chairs and tables emerge on the foot path as people want their morning coffees. Business is brisk. The violinists are practicing down to the left by the pond. The pond has all the photographers circling along, with all their gear out, using their longest tele lens to isolate the lotus flowers. Elsewhere, you see all the boyscout uniforms and the waiting parents. Across the road you find the fitness buffs, doing pull ups bare chested. Male only, so traffic passes by smoothly. Nothing to see.

It’s time to take out the camera. Only one lens, a macro, and I delve into yet another world.

A half day at the park – The wedding photography assignment

David & Mai's Wedding

Love knows no borders. David and Mai met in Australia where they live. David is Vietnamese, Mai is Japanese and they wanted to do their wedding pictures in Vietnam together with their families. Mai had happened to see our work and liked it enough to contact us for the occasion. It is always great to hear people wanting to work with you because they like your work. It is simply the best compliment possible.

David and Mai wanted an outdoor shoot and we organised permits for one of the local parks and started early as the day soon gets hot and the light gets harsher. By the time we finished, the rain clouds had gathered and gave us a heavy shower as we drove back. Here is the result from the session, enjoy:
