Photographer's Note

Sunday is market day in Bac Ha, which is the occasion for the local ethnics, Flower Hmong, to gather in huge crowds to exchange the latest news, shop, and eat lunch.

The market was distinctly divided into different sections, and this lady was spotted through the dusty m瘭嶪 overlooking the livestock department in which one could buy a water buffalo for US$500 as well as human consumables such as pigs, dogs, chicken & duck for a lot less! The whole place is bustling with activity, making it an extremely fascinating place to visit - it is almost like being transported back in time!

Unsharp filter applied, then resized and framed.

Comments, observations and workshops, as always, invited.

Regards,

Vic, Singapore. 26th October 2004.
