When posting my main travel stories, I realize there are many others which get lost in the shuffle. Unfortunately, sometimes there’s just no place for them in a flow of writing. So what do you do when you come to those moments which feel seemingly sentimental yet brief?
Photographs nail the moment perfectly, where words falter or can’t find themselves. The photo above is of a Vietnamese mother and daughter team (above), I met in Vinh Long while on my 2-day excursion of the Mekong Delta. They had a stall in the open-air fresh meat section of the market in. I was curious about their ethnic beauty– they didn’t look like the majority of Vietnamese I had been seeing. They were curious about me also- they thought I was Vietnamese.
As a blogger, photographer, travel writer… how do you handle those touching moments which sometimes don’t have a place in your writing?
