High heeled bikers

Hanoi is, of course, over run by motorbikes and one large sub segment of those bikers are women, navigating the narrow streets and crazy traffic of the city, perfectly styled and in their high heeled shoes. I am one of those klutzy people who feel out of their depth just trying to walk straight in heels, so imagining someone controlling a bike and navigating one of the craziest cities in the world in them is mind boggling to say the least. Yet everywhere I looked, I saw these women. Absolutely perfectly put together, completely graceful, going about their business in the most no nonsense manner possible. It may be a small thing, but it caused me great amazement and a certain admiration.

I want everything in this photo (except maybe the purse) and I don't even wear heels, usually. Love the dress, the bike, the colors, everything. Great shot.

That's why Stanley Kubrick used "These boots are made for walkin' for his Vietnam movie :))

Lovely shot.
