The two photos of not very artistic quality were taken in Saigon. The period was early 1960s and early 1970s. One is of two of my pupils, the other of two students at the Ecole des Beaux Arts. With the passing of the years odd little photos one had completely forgotten about gain in value what they are lacking in quality. The portrait photos in Vietnam were of a superb quality but every day photography often lacked the quality one finds today. It is strange how these two pictures, taken perhaps ten years apart have the same cactus type plant as background. The uncle of one of the girls in the top photo was a student with one of the girls in the bottom one. A fact that is of no utter use to anyone reading this post but at the time was of iinterest to me.
