Day 5~ July 5th~ Vietnam

To trust again

Somewhere along the way during human history, the essence of trust was forced to retreat.

In a country like Vietnam where people had to suffer one occupation after another, and one war followed by the next, seeing a foreigner does not call out the essence of trust as a first principle. Warmth has to be won, encouraged out of people especially if you were like me armed with a camera. It is always a wonderful gift when a smile appears after a frown, and when trust is allowed to soften a human dealing.

  1. Excelent picture! I really like it!

  2. Interesting how trust/distrust is strongly embedded in their culture.

  3. Interesting that you use the term armed with a camera and we often used the words to shoot or to capture an image don’t we… My blogging friend Scilla pointed this out to me once and it’s made me think about how we came to use those military style words..
