More Vietnam B&W

The utility poles and lines in Vietnam caught my B&W photographer's eye in a big way. Lots of dark lines converging against an open sky--just the thing for B&W film. I have a series of shots like these and they all look like the linemen were on acid when they strung these lines: gaggles of wires going everywhere, sometimes anchored to balconies in between the utility poles. Many of the poles had public address speakers. On our last morning in Hanoi Maggie and I heard announcements but didn't have a clue what they were about.

These images are scanned from 8x10 proof prints. The previous ones were scanned from my contact sheet. I don't see much difference in the blog images
