Welcome to Hanoi!
Sometimes it pays to look down. It's been a busy month for me -- I've been traveling since Chinese New Year -- not just back home, but to Vietnam and then to New Zealand. This little bit of detail was captured in Hanoi and only about the size of a coin stuck on the sidewalk . The city had just celebrated Chinese New Year and there's some remnants of confetti or something on the ground. I realised the potential of this shot the moment I looked down and saw it. The image is slightly post processed to increase contrast and cropped a bit to keep the little red Communist heart as central as possible. Nikon D7000, AF-S Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 VR
