Portrait along the Ngô Đồng River
From a bridge over the Ngô Đồng River, a memorable smile

Tam Coc Portrait

More precisely, a candid portrait, snapped from the hip as I was rowed under a bridge on the Ngô Đồng River, near the city of Nihn Binh in northern Vietnam. It’s a bit shaky, but the pleasant memory more than makes up for that.

This was taken at the very beginning of the rowing part of an trip to the Tam Cốc, or three caves, a popular day trip excursion from Hanoi. Together with this woman, this pair owned two of the most unforgettable smiles I had the pleasure of experiencing in Vietnam.

Today’s Pic du Jour, the 286th straight, was snapped on 25-Oct-2010, exactly four years ago today.
