Postcards from Readers: Hoi An, Vietnam

The photographer: John Fleischman of Granite Bay

Behind the lens: During a recent trip to Southeast Asia, we visited Hoi An, a well-preserved historic town located on the central coast of Vietnam. The city is a fascinating mix of architectural styles including colorful temples, French colonial buildings, and ornate Vietnamese tube houses. Hoi An is a popular city for destination weddings from couples throughout the world. I shot this photograph of a wedding couple celebrating their marriage and wishing for a good life by launching floating candles down the Thu Bon River.
