A photo collection in which a Ukrainian model has posed with lotus flowers in Hanoi has attracted public interest.
The photo collection was taken by Nguyen Trung Anh, 22, in Hanoi. Anh said that he accidentally saw Olga Salyuk from Ukraine take a walk around the West Lake, so he invited her to be the model.
She is a professional model in Ukraine, so was happy to collaborate.
Trung Anh has been working in the photography sector for four years. He also has the passion for filming and drawing.
Posing with lotus flowers has become a trend for many people in Hanoi. Every lotus season, the lotus pond becomes a place to attract crowds of young couples and families to take pictures.
Lotus flowers near Ho Tay are usually in full bloom from the beginning of June, attracting large numbers of visitors.
The selfie-lovers find the admission fees, ranging from VND30,000 to VND50,000 (USD1.30-2.20) per person quite acceptable.
The pond owners are also willing to rent clothes or even provide photography service for visitors.
