Today, I want to inaugurate a new initiative that I hope to repeat every week, time permitting. The idea is to publish, once a week a photo series of 10 or 12 frames, on a specific topic, like an online exhibition.
The photo series of this week is titled:
Monsoons – Under a heavy rain
These 12 photographs tell of an afternoon in Ho Chi Minh city in Vietnam, at the end of the monsoon season. As I walked, suddenly it broke loose a heavy storm and in these cases, the only thing to do, even to save camera and the equipment, is to find a shelter somewhere.
But rather than being bothered, I turned this situation into an opportunity and I began to observe and photograph, always from the same point of view, what was happening in front of me and how the life of the Vietnamese people, perennially driving a motorbike, was affected by the heavy rainfall.
All the pictures have been taken using a Leica M (typ 262) and a Summicron-M 28mm f2 ASPH lens.
(To purchase signed prints of these photos, please go to my website, here.)
Thanks for watching, I would highly appreciate any comment or criticism to my pictures.
