Sunday Stills the next challenge: Power Lines

As soon as I heard this challenge my mind instantly went to Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam. How could it not! It was my first glimpse of Vietnam, when I woke up and ventured outside the door. My eyes were immediately drawn upwards and were accosted with this ?mess. They hang quite low so how do large trucks manage to get by them?  Again in Ha Noi (BTW one of my most favoured cities) was much the same but the flowers were a pleasant distraction.

Strangely enough the power in Vietnam was perfect, the internet connection without fail. How, you have to wonder!!


Power lines we might not love them but boy do we need them! Imagine life without….

  1. Great shot. The power lines are one of my really strong memories of Ha Noi (unfortunately I didn’t get any photos). The view is similar in old Delhi as well


  2. Hi Kaz…Love these photos of Vietnam perfect for your challenge..


  3. They look taut and well hung, which is something!, and perhaps why it all works so well?


  4. Ha ha. I have an ongoing conversation with another blogger who lives in Thailand about the power lines. I really don’t like them and one day I even photoshopped some of them out of one of his photos for a laugh. lol I thought of him when I saw the subject this week.
    btw – great photos.


    • I know the feeling. I took a lovely picture of the top of a church with a really nice window, only one problem the power line! Cant live with them, cant live without them, at least ours aren’t so thick and obnoxious.


  5. Vietnam has some of the most amazing looking power lines in the world…


  6. The power lines in Ho Chi Minh City look just like Chile.


  7. I couldn’t believe my eyes! I’ve never seen anything like that before. 😀


I would love to hear from you...
