Contrast at Point of View

Life is heavy for some people, but simply happy for another.


I was on my way to Cu Chi Tunnel from Ho Chi Minh City by public transport last April 2014. On the bus, I sat at the opposite a man and his cute little girl. She looked so happy and excited. She almost couldn’t stop raving about anything. But her father only occasionaly respon. 

I couldn’t refrain my self to not took this fascinating view. I hope those Vietnamese won’t angry me because I have photographed them in silence. I hope.

At the image, they look like seeing at the same thing, but their expression is so different. It makes me wanna go back into the kids. A time when life is just to be happy, without thinking of many thing that are complicated.


This post is linked to weekly photo challenge for the tame of this week; CONTRASTS.

    someday her father will miss the moment like this and hope that he could turn back the time 😦

    Beautiful capture, and very sensitive interpretation – I thought the same when I saw it… their expressions really contrast with one another. The little girl looks like a treasure that her father is not fully appreciating because he’s got other worries reflected in his eyes. Being able to appreciate a moment for what it is – without worry about past or future – is a great gift.
