Zooming out

When I'm in a new country, I always like to get a photo of their flag. No real reason, except to help me remember it, and it's fun to try to snatch it mid-flap. So when I was in northern Viet Nam with World Expeditions and saw this motorbike parked at a viewpoint in Ha Giang province, I snapped it. See how the angle of the bamboo the flag's tied to mirrors the angle of the peak behind it? Entirely accidental.
Of course, I'm not the only person to think of doing this, so Brendon was there too, taking a better one despite his mangled elbow; and Kathy behind me - never my best angle - was recording the moment...
... while further back still, Duke was photographing her photographing us photographing the flag. And each one of us was working, I'll have you know.
