Photography brings us closer - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

Advanced means of transportation have made a huge difference in how we do business and how far we get to travel to in our lives.  Although I've been travelling and taking photographs for  years, not until today did I realize how close I can be with somebody, brought together by photography.If you remember, I made a trip to Vietnam and Cambodia in November of 2010.  While every city that we visited was amazing, Hoi An remained one of favorites due to it's diverse culture background and colorful architecture.  So you may remember this image that I've posted on my Facebook fan page or on Flickr.

Can you believe just one month earlier, someone took an image at the same spot?  Mind you, it's on an off-beat street that I don't think every tourist visits and this lady lives all the way in Catalonia.  What can I say?  Great minds think alike! :-)

P.S. I have to say it's pretty amazing that the same bike was still there a month later, not locked.  But the bananas had disappeared.  Any clue? ;-)

P.P.S. Any image in the Fine Art Photography category can be purchased to adorn your beautiful home.  Please contact me for sizes and presentation options.  Many ready to hang solutions to be recommended.

A real beauty brought back from Vietnam - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

I realized that it's been months since our trip to Vietnam and Cambodia and I've been guilty of not sharing enough beautiful images from it.  This one stuck in my mind even during the trip. It was the day that we arrived in Hanoi.  The weather was perfect and we took an easy afternoon stroll along the lake near our hotel.  It turned out to be a popular day (or season) for bridal portraits.  We must have run into at least 5 couples within an hour.  This bride-to-be in her traditional costume, with the soft rays on her shoulder, was simply too beautiful to pass up for me.

So here's my take on her bridal portraiture:

Anybody knows this beautiful bride?  I would love to send her a print.
