Contemplation by Hoan Kiem

20140427-195442.jpg
Hoan Kiem is a beautiful tranquil lake right in the heart of bustling Hanoi, Vietnam. It boasts a pagoda in its centre and a very old turtle which some locals believe has mystical powers. It is not unusual to see couples and individuals sitting in quiet contemplation by the water’s side and old ladies doing their exercises.
This painting in oils, is from a photograph taken by my son, who lives in Hanoi.
