I found another dramatic, high contrast sky shot among my color slides and converted it to a much improved B&W image.
Maybe I should have titled this one “Behind the Wire.” The aircraft is a South Vietnamese Air Force prop driven fighter.
I run the risk of spoiling the impact of the first shot with this one. The image is a cludge from a poor slide but it gives context. The main runway is on the right on the other side of the wire. The silver objects in the distance along the wire are the propane tanks that fueled the floodlights I mentioned in my post last week. You can see the blurred outline of the steering wheel in my jeep. Take note of the wonderful road I had to drive.
I almost broke my thumb one night when my front wheel slipped into a rut and the steering wheel spun like a roulette wheel. Ouch!
