Autumn in Hanoi with a dash of rain

Fish in the wet markets of Hanoi

One of my most favourite places to visit is Vietnam and in particular Hanoi.  I find Vietnam to be a place where I am always learning something new and meeting very friendly people. I love walking the streets with a camera and experiencing all that Vietnam has to offer - including so many of the most fabulous local foods that can be found on the street.  During my most recent visit to Hanoi, it was cool (being Autumn) and mostly rainy with the occassional gaps in the rain. There are quite a few photos presented here again liek my previous psots but I do ask ou to be patient as the photos load.  Like all my recent travels these photos have been taken with that brilliant travel camera the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and the Olympus 12mm lens, Olympus 45mm lens and the Voigtlander 17.5mm lens.
