Normally, Tyler and I leave the camera home at night. We figure we don't need to encourage any pickpocketing or other nefarious activities, and then we can just relax and enjoy our evening. On our second-to-last night in Hoi An, though, I fell in love with the look of the old town at night--lots of glowing lanterns, and the green and yellow colors had a really vintage feel. So we brought out the camer and experiemented. Here are a few favorites. (You'll also probably understand why we decided to buy and ship home a few lanterns for a future backyard!)
Sunset and lanterns
Restaurants reflecting in the river
Buildings on the other side of the river
Street they sell lots of lanterns on
Cafe across from the patisserie where we grabbed some dessert. We loved the colors, though the red of the waitresses dresses doesn't show as well as I'd hoped
PS Thanks to Tyler's friend and co-worker Brian and his wife Kim who gave us a little travel tripod as a going away present. Couldn't take night shots without it!
