Photograph "A fish seller displays his goods" is snapped by British photographer Jon Enoch.

The photo snapped by Enoch is titled “A fish seller displays his goods” and showcases a man posing whilst on his motorbike in Ha Noi with several bags filled with goldfish. Originally featured on the BBC in a photo project which displays daily life in Ha Noi, the photographer notes the amazing ability that local people have when transporting goods of all kinds in astonishing quantities.

“I spent a week chasing down riders and their cargos and convincing them to pose for the camera,” the photographer shared.

In addition to the photo snapped in Ha Noi, an image showing cave fishing taking place in the south of the country during the monsoon season taken by Thai artist Natnattcha Chaturapitamorn finished among the finalists in the Travel category.

The other finalists in the Travel category include “Blooming” by Nguyen Thien and “Boat, flower, Vietnam” by local artist Nguyen Tuan Tran.

The 17th annual Smithsonian magazine photo contest received over 36,000 entries submitted by photographers hailing from 145 countries and territories globally.

Since its inception in 2003, the photo contest has served as a platform for photographers and those with a great passion for taking pictures, urging them to capture picturesque landscapes and unique cultural traits that can be found in the daily lives of people around the world.
