Photographer's Note

In Hanoi airport on our way back to Bangkok.

Remember my picture "Raw Expectations". Here's the rest of that event.

I saw a lot of Vietnamese locals converging in the entrance to the departure area. Then I heard some wailings. Relatives were sending off family members to Taiwan to work either as domestic helpers or factory workers. There was a horde of them. I saw them hugging, crying, kissing, etc. Then the man (probably the recruiter) called them in. That was when I took this shot. It was a moving experience.

I can easily identify with this situation. Going back home to the Philippines twice a year, I saw similar situations. Raw expectations...false expectations...full expectation. I can go on and on. I have so many stories to tell along this line. This is reality and you ought to see and know this.

Converted to BW. I am posting the colored version. Give me your feedback as to which one is a better version.
