Generations

HDP  155

I usually have a hard time to take portrait photographs of people when I'm in Hanoi; a number of them will simply refuse. So imagine my surprise when this happy grandfather asked me to take a picture of him and his granddaughter! I hope you like it as much as I do.

Oh Jerome, this is just a wonderful portrait. Good for you! Keep trying to take them. I love street portraits and it's so rewarding when you get them. Bravo!

This is a fabulous portrait. You can sense the grandfather's pride. I really enjoy your photos. You seem to clearly capture the essence of the moment.

If you plan to go back to Nam Dinh again, you should totally print this photo out and give it to them. That'd be priceless.
