Woman in Traditional Hat and Bitexco Financial Tower, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Ho Chi Minh City is a world of old traditions and striking modernity. This image shows a woman in the foreground with a traditional hat still commonly worn in Vietnam today. She walks amidst a modern city with the Bitexco Financial Tower in the background redoubling her figure in a way that suggests this contrast of old and new.
