From The Streets of Hoi An, Vietnam

 From The Streets of Hoi An, Vietnam

 Wandering the streets of Hoi An, Vietnam for street photography subjects keeps some folks out of the tailor shops that populate most of this former colonial settlement. And that may be good for you.

The town tailors can have you stepping out in the latest silk finery, especially if you come prepared with your preferred design. However, the streets of Hoi An do not disappoint either, with subjects young and old, traditional and modern, smiling and hesitant, offering as a minimum a glance towards the box of magic. You can save in trips to the tailor too. Most require several fittings and the talented Vietnamese shop folks have no problem with the customer’s fine tuning requests. These trips can be more than entertaining as the they take the slightest hint of interest as a possible sale and remain vigilant, even if your suitcase is already full of made in Vietnam fashions. They will joke and prod and offer and promise until the next thing you know the tape that turns numbers into product is slipping around your frame and tomorrow night a suit will be at the front desk of your guest house. But if you stick to stalking street subjects you can still be entertained and keep your money in your pocket far away from tonight’s tailor.
