I do enjoy all your photos Vincent.G.

EDIT: I meant to ask, was the photo of the beach China Beach?

Kind of like the old milk trains in Wisconsin and other nearby states 50 years ago. It seemed like that stopped for every cow besides the tracks.

I was surprised to see the screening on the windows. What is it needed for?

Thanks to all of you posting photos of Vietnam. Unlike many GIs who were there, I have a lot of good memories of Vietnam, along with some not so pleasant and some scary, of course. But overall, good and interesting.

It's interesting to have a viewpoint from a US veteran here. I believe that you have a lot more information to share with us.
About the wired screening on the train windows: these kind of train is from quite a long time ago, when kids used to throw stuffs to the train when it passing by (?! don't knwo why, for fun may be). Therefore those screening were used to protect passengers inside the train.

Thanks for the reply. Looking forward to you photo 10 years from now.

When I was there I never traveled by train. I don't recall ever seeing trains used. But when I first got there, I remember the US buses that took us from Tan Son Nhut to Long Binh had screens against grenades or other dangerous objects.

Thanks, but it doesn't compare to my all-time favorite of yours:

Tried pushing HP5+ 2-stops. Contrast was nice for some and a bit much for others. Will keep it going for a few more rolls to see how it goes. Lots to learn.

nicely done rhygin,

hp5 plus is great film to push, 2 stops is not matter. I think your photos are a bit under exposure hence the high contrast, other than that great contents.

Struggled a bit to make my very first post here without saying a word. I was in Vietnam last Christmas and New Year. I visited Hanoi, Sapa and few other places. Always enjoyed the photos presented in this thread. Hopefully, I will return to Vietnam one day


Long Bien Bridge was one of the longest bridge in Asia when it was completed in 1902. It crosses Red River and connects two districts in Ha Noi.

DSC00373-Edit by T Zhou, on Flickr


The bridge is a bit rusty and shakes when there is a train passing, hopefully, some loving care will be given to this historical bridge

DSC00372-Edit by T Zhou, on Flickr

Nevertheless, it is a potentially good spot for some exercises

DSC00068-Edit by T Zhou, on Flickr

Or even better, it attracts many local people to have their photos taken

I just spent the morning looking through this thread and it is great! As a bonus, I got to see some HP5 pushed shots which I have been wondering about. Thanks for keeping this thread going!

Glad that the thread can still entertain you and folks here. It's a great motivation for me (and others I guess) to continue.

Hi Nigel,

Good to know that you managed to post here. Are those photos from the last visit to Hanoi when we had a chance to meet up?

Hi Trung, yes those were taken during that visit. I'm back in Vietnam at the moment but right down in the south right now.
