Scene on the mighty Mekong River, Vietnam

Scene on the mighty Mekong River, Vietnam

Shots taken with the wonderfully vivid Kodak Elite slide film during a fantastic three-week trip I made to Vietnam in 1997. The slides were scanned by Jessops, a high-street chain in the UK, and I must say I'm pleased with the results, even though the resolution is not particularly high. Considering these are slides from 15 years ago, they've lost almost nothing of their colour, contrast or punchy vibrance. That's testament to how fantastic the Elite Chrome film is, I guess.

    you should work for national geographic I'm serious! your pics are so realistic, and of course you're able to catch the true and pure essence of every place you're visiting. and as far as portraits are concerned... well, they're gorgeous! so once again, great album ;D
