These photos were all taken in 2008 when I visited Vietnam for the third time.  I was there in 1967 – 1968, as a nineteen year old Marine Corps Sergeant, and then again in 2004.  This trip lasted about a month, and covered virtually the entire country, from the Mekong Delta in the south to Chinese border  in the north.  I was shooting with a small Leica camera, and it seemed only appropriate to shoot in black & white. Shortly after this trip I made the switch to digital, and purchased a Canon EOS 5D Mark II full-frame camera and assorted L-lenses (pro-level luxury lenses).  I’ve never regretted my decision.
