#7 Junk at night

A woman travels from boat to boat selling goods in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam.

Taking photos at night usually requires a tripod.  Taking photos at night of a moving boat from another moving boat is to be avoided at all costs.

Of course, I didn’t know that at the time I took this shot.  My tripod was out on the top deck of a junk boat and the other passengers were wondering if I had some special night vision camera or something.  Nope – I didn’t.  Just a tripod and no clue.

Helped by the wind, the waves were pushing the boats up and down.  I think I ended up just hand holding it because the tripod was basically useless without firm ground.

It’s not the sharpest shot in the world but I like it!  I hope you do too :)
