Favourite Portrait

This photo has been my favourite frontal portrait for many years. It reminds me of the National Geographic picture of the Afghan girl.

_DSC7127
Picture was taken in 2006, during my trip to Hanoi via Crossing Bridges 6. For the trip, the Malaysian contingent made a stop over in Singapore before heading to Hanoi via Changi. We spent a night in Beetle Hut, a small dormitory type B&B somewhere around Joo Chiat.
In the B&B, they have a lot of the pictures from National Geographic posted on the wall. From there, I got the inspiration to shoot this picture (and many others). But I guess – after some point it got a bit monotonous, but hey – at the end of the day, you just need one picture to make the trip worth it 🙂
