Top tip for other photographers:
This one usually works for me. When I am on a photo trip, the first day I just head out on the streets without my camera. It is more of a "mental note-taking" session. Each place has a character of its own, and I feel I need to give myself some time to have an idea of the uniqueness before I start making images. I've noticed following this approach yields images with a better "connect".
I took this photo in the older parts of Saigon. I love the way how this image is all about order and balance, with regular shapes and straight lines, in an otherwise crazy and chaotic city full of life.
