Again, Hanoi, this time in the park, about 6 different species of monkey in cages in the rain. There were signs up telling us not to feed the animals, there were scatterings of food across the floor and none of the animals looked like they should be there or wanted to be.
I took a lot of pictures of this male, ass his expression said it all for me. He didn’t interact with the Vietnamese couple offering food, as the others did. He simply ignored all of us, staring off into space.
I’m not sure this shows an entire story, but as soon as I saw this woman in Hanoi, I wanted to take a picture of her, but without drawing attention to myself. I had to stand across the road and use the zoom, because I wanted to know her story.
Who is she? Why does she look so sad? Is it grief? Despair? Desperation? I will never know but I will always wonder.
As my time in Asia draws to a close (1 week left) I thought I’d put together a gallery of some of the people I’ve come across so far in Thailand, Laos and Vietnam. I’ve even included a sneaky few of me!
Let me know what you think in the comments below!
Phat gets it ready to cut off.
