40 Days 27/40. Sapa, Viet Nam.

Two images taken about 50 meters apart on a trail between two villages near Sapa. Documentary storytelling often includes an establishing image or setting. These aren’t always made to the technical levels of landscape photography, but they still help frame the story and show the beauty … or the ugly … of what is there. The color of the trail shifts the look from the first to second image…early digital cameras didn’t hold the consistency we see today.

40 Days 26/40. India.

A young girl in a back alley in a Dehli neighborhood. The prior frame included her older relative nodding with approval as I asked to take the photo. Some days, the light does all the work for you.
