If it weren’t for the modern water bottles on the tables, this photo could have been taken in any year. Flickr user American Jon captured a beautiful lunchtime scene at the Bac Ha Sunday market in Vietnam, with great color from the traditional costumes and perfect lighting. Bac Ha is known for the many ethnic minorities who are found only in the region, serving up unusual food like thang co, a blood porridge made with horse meat, as well as moonshine.
Titled “Afternoon Snack,” this photo by Patrick Powers is a modern day still-life. What a study of light, colors and shapes that capture the mood of a Sunday afternoon in California. The photo was taken at the Ritz-Carlton. Wouldn’t Rembrandt have loved the subtle light on the people in the background and the glint and shimmers of the glass?
If you have an image that would make an art master proud, send it our way at Gadling Flickr photo pool. It could be picked for a Photo of the Day.
