Photo: Selling flowers in Hoi An, Vietnam

I spotted this woman selling flowers in the market in Hoi An, Vietnam and was instantly attracted to the colours in the scene. She knew I was taking her photo, as did all of the other women nearby who insisted I do her the favour of buying some of her flowers, which I did. I then found myself standing there with a massive bouquet of flowers I didn’t need. Not far away was a restaurant where I had eaten the day before where I gave them to a server who was particularly friendly to us. She seemed puzzled by the sudden gift, but at least it kept my hands free to take more photos.
