Short description of this photo essay
On a cloudy day on Cat Ba island, Vietnam I found interesting sightseen. Local Vietnamese women were picking rock shells with their sharp ice axes. This job wasn’t easy at all. These rock shells are hard and pointed. However, they didn’t have any problems with that. Their bowls were full in no time. Were they happy to see me with the camera? Well, at first not so much, but when I showed them photos they looked somehow interested. Still not ready to pose or anything, but didn’t mind much about me. Best possible scenario for the photographer. Weather that morning wasn’t the best for photography. But still better this light, than some harsh sunny one. After all, it came out great. Their colorful clothes are punching out from this pastel rocks. These photographs are unedited. I only adjusted brightness, contrast and color balance. Those steps were needed, due to my RAW shooting. Enjoy this photo gallery
