Imagine a boat at sea, that is swaying in the ocean. Without an anchor— it would float away (and possibly be captured by pirates).

Dear friend, I want to write you a letter and some personal reflections about photographing landscapes— particularly, how to shoot “non-boring” landscapes, which aren’t cliche.

Imagine you’re at a fancy steakhouse. And there is fat on the edges of your steak. What are you “supposed” to do? Cut out the fat, and eat the meat.

Food is pretty good, friendly staff. Good view too. But rooms are horrible, cold in the winter, and not updated. Got booked here part of Sapa tour. Don't recommend staying here.

By far the nicest, coffee shop in Sapa. Great interior, rustic feel, and great art. If I lived here I would come here everyday.
