This traditional stilt house on a pond in Hanoi, Vietnam, was the home of Ho Chi Minh from 1958 through 1969. It is a simple structure, open to the gardens and free flowing air, washing over the living quarters. Carp were found in the pond for fishing.

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.
