Mekong Moment

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Lancelot Lie

We were on a boat tour of the floating markets in the area of Chau Doc, Vietnam when I took this quick snapshot of a girl relaxing on her boat as we passed by. She didn't wave or try to greet us. She just had a relaxed smile of contentment and happiness in her face as she lay in her hammock. I don't know what she was thinking in that moment, but being able to see this gentle expression made me happy to be a traveller.

Location: Mekong River, Chau Doc, Vietnam
