This is the main post office in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. It is truly something out of a movie from the 1960’s with its antique maps, telephone cabins and beautiful marble flooring and architecture.

    And is that the namesake himself hanging above the clock? he looks quite young in that one doesn’t he…..
    What a fabulous building…. Even the fans look like they’re still there from the 60’s!

  • That is indeed Ho Chi Minh and I read recently that this building was actually built by Gustave Eiffel. Who would have thought? It definitely felt like you were transported back in time.

    The light seems to come from four directions. The windows to the left, the roof, reflection in the floor and the lighting at the desks. Add the wonderful lines to it… and – don’t know why – I like the clock :-).

  • Thank you so much Peter … I definitely liked all of the little touches like the clock and fans that gave it that retro feel. It honestly felt like you had gone back in time

    I love that you took it at this angle – waay cool shot!!
    I just love those wall fans!

  • Probably a cop out because I seem to have problems keeping the camera straight to start with!! That and I always the voice of my photo teacher in my head that says to take a photo from an angle different from how you actually see things in real life. Definitely something that stuck with me!
