Hats Off

"I was drawn to an older woman who was working very hard on crafting these hats," writes Your Shot member Huynh Jet, who captured this photo in a traditional dwelling in Duc Hoa, Long An Province, Vietnam. "I climbed on a ladder and stood there until I caught the moment when she put the threads into the hat. A big traditional family in Long An has made and sold hats for over a hundred years."
