I understand that pre-1990(ish) there was very little in the way of advertising in Vietnam. Now, well, it’s an altogether different story. Whether it be hanging outside the front of a cornershop, draped over a Vinababe in a restaurant or plastered across the side of a tall building. Everything and anything is advertised. There are more advertising agencies in this town than somewhere else with lots and lots of ad agencies. Now’s there an impressive statistic for you. But the building above caught my eye this morning.
Another oldie YouTubed. I like the bit at the 3 minute mark where the cameraphone spins around. If you go to the YouTube page, you’ll see the button pictured left just below the vidscreen. If you press the right hand image you get to see a near full size screening, although it’s a little juddery. Dunno how to permalink that… Talking of cameraphones, the camera on mine croaked yesterday. But I’m likng the look of the new one. I also like gifts.
Grapefruit drying on the Saigon pavements. Good for hair, if you’ve got any.
Another shot in what is fast becoming photoweek from the streets of Saigon, Vietnam. I like this one a lot. For those who’ve never visited Vietnam – and have a good imagination – look at the big version and ‘listen’ to hear what life is like on the streets of Saigon by night.
