good morning Vietnam - flowers in Hanoi
good morning Vietnam - flowers in Hanoi

Quan Ba flower market.

Even if you have to be quite early (4-5 AM) on the site of this quite unique flower market, for sure you will not get disappointed. This is valid not only for flower lovers but also for "regular" tourists who enjoy to watch local people. 

This is Hanoi’s busiest flower market, and it’s supposed to really get going from around 02:00 till 06:00, You’ll genuinely be amazed at the volume of flowers being packed onto single motorbikes. We spied sunflowers, roses, chrysanthemums, orchids, gerberas, lilies, hydrangeas and various kinds of greenery being sold at the market. A couple of stalls sell arrangements, but mostly the same kind of flower is sold by the bundle. The single globes used to illuminate the market add to the atmosphere.

incredible India - foggy India Gate
incredible India - foggy India Gate
New Delhi under its usual fog dominating in January ...

from the Wikipedia:
India Gate is a memorial to 70,000 soldiers of the 
British Indian Army who died in the period 1914–21 in the First World War, in France, FlandersMesopotamiaPersiaEast AfricaGallipoli and elsewhere in the Near and the Far East, and the Third Anglo-Afghan War. 13,300 servicemen's names, including some soldiers and officers from the United Kingdom, are inscribed on the gate.[1][2] The India Gate, even though a war memorial, evokes the architectural style of the triumphal arch like the Arch of Constantine, outside the Colosseum in Rome, and is often compared to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, and the Gateway of India in Mumbai. It was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens.

There are many countries where the greatest show offered to the visitors is enacted by the local people.
No doubt that India is one of the most prominent ones. We were steadily fascinated by the people not only by their way of friendly behavior and approach of life in general but also simply by their 
physiognomy.
Usually, I am an adept of the spontaneous, not directed portraits, but, in some cases, especially when asked by the models themselves, I am ready to make a non-spontaneous portrait and sometimes it might be worth to upload the result to DA. IMHO this is such a case.

Good morning Vietnam - Navigating MeKong delta
Good morning Vietnam - Navigating MeKong delta

Every time when we are returning home from a trip aboard, Sarina and myself face quite a huge problem in selecting the better pics. If we have to deal with some 16 thousand photos, as in this case (even though that I have lost a full memory card with some 1500-2000 photos ...). It sounds somehow difficult to understand (especially that some of our best friends have developed various techniques and are always willing to transfer the technology).
Selecting the "best" pics within such a bulk of data shall (never-mind the approach) allow several pics to glide into some kind of garbage collector and remain "lost" for ever.
Therefore, when the chance allows to recover some good pics, I am always very happy. It happened to us that during the "preparation" for a "best of" collection we have bumped into this pic that I consider quite typical for a great part of our trip in Vietnam. We hope it  might find some resonance in the mind of part of our friends in dA. If this is the case please enjoy.

just an editing trial to use a bit the Topaz studio (pro) adjustment AI (Artistic Intelligence) clear. It seems quite impressive if we have to judge in accordance with the result (and all this despite my complete lack of 
experience and patience).
I should be the last to like this (my) pic; however I do and this is not merely connected to the photographic quality but mainly to its iconic value this specific location has for me and perhaps for all Romanian people living in or outside the country since it represents the very heart of this wonderful city Bucharest that id the capital of Romania

As I have been asked by the logistics VP of my son's company to assist in printing several of my photographic works on glass, I am currently involved in the final stage of this activity.
My role, besides suggesting some of the works selected eventually, is to use as a quality controller and "artistic supervisor". I am also in contact with the printing enterprise and practically quite absorbed (and really pleased) by the whole matter.  Therefore, as it kept me quite busy implying the re-work of the selected works, I have decided to give a small token to all this by publishing a kind of "virtual" dedicated work.

I do hope it might be of some interest for part of my friends on dA
