Nothing visually of note really bar the cultural style; maybe of more historic significance.

Wonder if SMS knows where it is...

- 'Old school' ah? For me WYSIWYG. None of my pix are adjusted. But I also really appreciate and respect digital modification. The latter is a subject in itself as one delves the realms between reality and the conceptual [X9: oso say right? ;;; ))

Not sure who this is by, but it is well known and at the Fall of Saigon.

Rene Burri (Magnum) - Prostitute at a brothel.

I enjoy these kind of images. Quick-fire juxtapositions.

Don McCullen [Magnum]. This to me is like photographic perfection.

The power of it [shaking head, as I simply can't reconcile, how I as a photographer might ever capture such an image. I can't of course... ]...

It looks like the location of the Givral Cafe in the Eden Centre, Saigon. It was opposite the Hotel Continental. Hangout of war correspondents, authors, and other shady characters. Unfortunately, I never went into the place.

I hear it is/was slated to be torn down for redevelopment a year or so ago.

Or, Singapore with public assemblies (they were all singing something in unison):

I can never imagine an ad-hoc group of people spontaneously singing something (anything) in Singapore. Even "Happy Birthday" sounds strange and awkward here.
