Stamp carver, Hanoi

Shot with my Nikon F100 on HP5 (I think) and scanned with my cheapo scanner back in 2009.

They didnt win the war by chance. They won it through gritting their teeth and getting down and dirty to survive.

I have crawled through the tunnels with my Domke F2, and till today, I have no clue how they did it with rice, babies, rifles and tools for 20 years.

Oh yes, the coffee...ROCKS.
