Hunters Pounce upon Prey on Lao Chai Bridge

This is our entry in Dutch goes the Photo!’s Tuesday Photo Challenge – Bridge.

In this photo, an unwary tourist has allowed herself to become separated from her pack on a bridge in Lao Chai and is about to be pounced upon by the Hmong souvenir sellers. The sellers are sweet, persistent, and have prices higher than a flagship department store in a mall. We wrote about them earlier in our post We Follow You Anyway.   Here they are seen on a rickety bridge several miles from Sa Pa where they first identify and then stalk their customers.

This photo was taken on February 12, 2017. Specs are:

Olympus TG-4, ISO 100, f/3.2, 1/640 sec, 60 mm full-frame equivalent
