Hats Off

Photograph by Huynh Jet, National Geographic Your Shot

"I was drawn to an older woman who was working very hard on crafting these hats," writes Your Shot member Huynh Jet, who captured this photo in a traditional dwelling in Duc Hoa, Long An Province, Vietnam. "I climbed on a ladder and stood there until I caught the moment when she put the threads into the hat. A big traditional family in Long An has made and sold hats for over a hundred years."

It's impossible to pick a favorite image.  I am in awe of the creativity people show, and I really appreciate seeing the world through others eyes.

The photo in B&W looks spectacular for kind of a pattern Huynh has captured keeping a well-knit composition in mind. It stands out because of its composition as well as a story detailing how a traditional art is conserved under the garb of a hundred-year-old business proposition of a family in the Long Ab province of Vietnam. 'Hats Off' to Huynh Jet for the capture and for being selected in the 'Photo of the Day' forum !

The lady and her dress give a perfect contrast to this seemingly simple picture, again in black and white, and taken so well. The lighting on the hats is almost a spot, as on stage! Impressive, very.  j.e.s..........
