The very nature of photography is slicing time. Photographs are based on exposure to light, be it film or sensor and usually lasting only a fraction of a second. But in that unique moment, magic is made, never to be repeated, for seasons change, expressions are different, and nothing is static. It’s just a click, but one of endless boundaries and imagination, pausing time, and never to be captured again.

Nearing the end of his long work day, the street vendor is on his way home hoping for a few more sales. The image is a reminder of how hard Vietnamese people work to support their families. There is a sense of loneliness, almost a sadness, however, his face did not reflect that when he passed me. Vietnamese are by nature kind, helpful, and generally happy.

Larry, this is a great image. All the detail, placing the cart vendor wonderfully in his environment.
