In My Bag

Came across this photo today I had forgotten about. It was taken in Phu Quoc, Vietnam in October of 2009.

Vietnam in Short

Finally getting a chance to sort and upload photos from my trip to Vietnam. The vacation overall was really great. Ho Chi Minh city is hectic, loud and chaotic. Even more so than Shanghai. At times got a bit too stressful for a vacation. The best part of the trip was by a long shot the 3 days of relaxing on the island of Phu Quoc. We had a bungalow on the beach, and waking to this view every morning is pretty amazing.

I also took some shots with my Holga. I am really happy with how they turned out. This is my first try at cross-processing my film. Some of the shots are a bit dark, but most of them I really like.

While I’m Out

I am about to head to the airport for a red-eye to Ho Chi Minh City and then on to Phu Quoc. This will be the first time in a very long time I have not taken a laptop with me on a trip/vacation. I will try and post an occasional photo or tweet here and there, but for the most part I will be pretty absent from the internet machine. Is it sad that my iPhone gives me much comfort in leaving my MacBook behind?

Getting Away!

Next week we are headed to Mango Bay in Phu Quoc, Vietnam (above). I am going to view the vacation as a complete “unplug” from everything including my laptop, email, Twitter, Tumblr, Blogs, Facebook and basically all the technology I am addicted to. There’s not even television or air conditioning in the bungalows. Beyond the technology I am also looking forward to just getting away from Shanghai and the chaos of this place. I plan on doing pretty much absolutely nothing.
