The Street Hawkers of Ho Chi Minh

Street photography (from wikipedia: photography that features the human condition within public places...) is a genre I enjoy shooting, despite being absolute crap at it. There's something about timing your shot to capture a fleeting and candid moment of life, and these scenes become particularly interesting for me when they document a way of life that is so utterly different than our experiences back home.

Here are a handful of shots taken while we were in Ho Chi Minh (and one from Mui Ne), Vietnam, of the various vendors and hawkers at street level.
