A concerto of cones

These little souvenir Vietnamese hats were on sale by a vendor on the street in Hanoi. This is almost a straight black and white conversion from the original colour photo, with a little bit cropped off the top for balance. I always have a particular fondness for black and white, and some shots, like this one, were intentionally shot to be converted to BW later. In this case choosing a wide aperture and going in closer will help to blur out the distracting background. Nikon D7000, AF-S Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.6-5.6 VR
