If we stare at you long enough, you will feed us.
Today, I visited a friend who recently renovated her restaurant not far from Emperor Tu Duc’s mausoleum. The tables and chairs are on terra cotta-tiled terraces, which are separated by a connected system of shallow waterways. These fish are the inhabitants. When I crouched to look at them, they mistook me for someone with food, I suppose, because they stayed in place, motionless but for a gentle waving of fins, staring up at me for a long time. I moved around a bit, trying out different angles with the camera until I liked the patterns of reflections, and the fish waited patiently. I hope they weren’t too disappointed when I failed to come up with something for them to nibble.
