Vietnam #6 - canals


@ District 7, Ho Chi Minh City

As I mentioned in my earlier shot that I was looking for canals in the Ho Chi Minh City. There are many of them and if you have a motorbike and a map, you can take your time with visiting all of them.

This one is in fact a narrower river rather than a canal. However, in terms of contamination, I think it's pretty much similar. I was stepping on some very greasy rocks with I-don't-want-to-know-what sticking on it. I was able to get in quite close to the water as it was low tide and ended up with dirty shoes/pants/tripod and a few long exposure shots.
