Welcome to Saigon

The flow of traffic in this city is at times simply astounding. With a reported 8 million motorbikes in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) alone, it's no wonder the roads are packed day and night.

At rush hour in certain parts of the city, witnessing the sheer volume of movement is nothing short of mesmerising, save for the obvious problems in air quality this causes. Good luck trying to cross the road too!

I took this image late afternoon just before the rush hour broke out. Knowing I wanted to isolate just the bikes, I opted to shoot multiple frames so I could remove normal traffic like taxis, trucks and buses. I ended up using about 40 or so frames to carefully mask in the parts I wanted for the final result.

Here's another portrait taken yesterday during an afternoon photowalk just outside of Hoi An.

Massive thanks to +Etienne Bossot for running these tours and showing a side of Vietnamese life off the beaten track.

Market seller girl in the Old Quarter of Hanoi.
They sell a mixture of fresh fruits, various nuts and lots of flowers, all from baskets attached to their bicycles.
I found out shortly after taking this how handy that is, as the cops sped in to the market and half the sellers took off in all directions.
