The conical hat is a symbol of Vietnam for good reason – you see them everywhere. They are worn mostly by middle-aged or elderly female laborers. I was taking photos of a temple when this cyclist passed by. My camera was set on a slow shutter speed, so I didn’t have high expectations for a good picture, but the colors were good so I decided to follow her with my camera and give it a try anyway. I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. It almost looks like a painting.
