Vietnam • Looking back at Sapa

Maybe it's the pitter-patter of the rain on the roof. maybe it's the somber mood cast by the rain clouds outside.I  just want to give my readers a splash of bold color for the time being, perchance to bring a little more zest into your day thru this capture of a Hmong woman selling her wares at the Sapa plaza.

I really like how she sites, merong character. Ganda rin ng kulay ng head dress nila.

Love the new header. Certified tatak Og-Shot! :D

hahaha, bro wulf talaga :-) anyway, i agree kasi it's hard not to notice her while we were waiting for a ride sa plaza. by chance talaga that she positioned herself that way when i took the shot.

thanks for the comment on the header. naku, og-shot ba yun? hahaha

astig header!

at first look before even reading the post content, i was trying to analyze if the person here is a male or female because of the bald look.

is that traditional?

dom, i think the hmongs gather their hair tightly beneath the headgear which is why the lady in the picture looks bald.

the menfolk wear rather plain-looking clothes so you can be sure the person in the picture is a woman :-) thanks for dropping by
