E06 “Gift Basket” Photography, canvas in wood frame Imagine the horrific reactions of bystanders as they catch a mother carrying her child in a bicycle's basket without a child’s helmet here in the US. However, in many parts of the world and in Vietnam, this is the only way mothers can afford to transport their children daily. The red sheer scarf is used to cover the child from the dirt along the unpaved road. Photo was taken in Ha Nam, when Hai-Ho participated with Project Vietnam on a medical mission. (18”x25”).

(21"x17" frame size, 8"x10" photo size). Hai-Ho Tran $250 $75 http://goo.gl/vYB5d
