Finding the light in Vietnemese brick kiln.

Our family were travelling in Vietenam and came across a family who made the bricks in the local community in the Mekon Delta. The family collected the mud from the paddy fields, mixed it with sedment collected from the river then formed upto 18000 bricks every day. The bricks were baked in one of these three huge kilns for 3 months. Josh, my 14 year old has just got into photography and was drawn to the glowing light inside. As he experimented, it was like a Raiders of the lost Arc moment. The beam of sunlight struck him and he just glowed!
