Random Images • Vietnam’s Basket Boats

Photography is my obsession and when traveling the world often images just present themselves. Most are random impressions with little context but some seem to suggest at a self contained story. Still others leave me wanting to find out more about what I stumbled upon. Here’s a glimpse of just why we travel…

Traveling south from Saigon (Nobody calls it Ho Chi Minh City) to the Mekong River we made a stop and these two fishermen were setting their nets. We’d seen these woven basket boats before but this was a great opportunity. These basket boats, called coracles are handwoven boats used in the central coast. The boats are woven from bamboo and covered in tar to waterproof them. Normally it takes several days to make one of these characteristic basket boats.
