Today, at a road junction…

20140420-173157.jpgBeing on holiday on your own gives you lots of time to do things you wouldn’t do if you were with someone. Like sit in caf├ęs, drinking beer and seeing if you really can get the photos from your camera to your iPhone to your blog using wifi and a couple of apps. If you’re reading this I guess we can say the answer is yes.

The other thing you can do when you don’t have someone else’s time to be mindful of is take 262 photos of a road junction. Yes I did just say that. I have a new camera and I’m playing with various settings and shutter speeds. I was trying to capture the freneticism of Ho Chi Minh City’s roads. I hadn’t quite realised just how many shots would be captured when I used the ‘continuous shooting’ function. Put it this way, I could make a great time lapse film of that junction!

I didn’t get any shots like the one I had in mind, but I’m including this one because it made me chuckle; I hadn’t noticed when I took the shot that amongst the bikes, scooters, cars and buses is a woman on foot. Cool as a cucumber. I promise I’m not doing that Mum!
