Photographer's Note

Good old 'xe loi' and someone's pride & joy resting under shade succumbing to nature whilst waiting for its owner. This caught my eye on my morning photo walk about in Chau Doc, I thought that this faithful two wheeler can really be so photogenic in my eyes hence the capture.

The 'xeloi' and its blue trademark colour, is an old form of public transportation here in the Mekong Delta town where a two-wheel seating cabin is attached behind a paddled bicycle. I had fond memories being driven around town on this 'xeloi' and that no matter their condition they will always grab our attention and admiration. A little sadness if they are gone by now due to stiff competition from motorbais and buses.

Setting: 120 mm, 1/640 sec, F2.8, ISO Raw 200, 0716 hrs & Polarised
