Hue, in Sepia

The weather was good throughout our trip, and we were lucky to arrive just after storms struck the coast. But on some dreary days, particularly our second day in Hue, color photos came out poorly. And for some photographs I decided to switch my digital camera to a sepia filter for a real 19th century feel. Nineteen of those photos follow, taken at a number of locations in central and north Vietnam.
