I owe much to Mr. Louis Pacilla who was the lucky first caller on a 5X7 Flatbed outfit that had a Karl Struss Pictorial lens included on Craigs List!! The seller offered to pitch the Struss lens in the trash if Louis didn't want it. Oh my God!! In any case Louis was a willing conspirator and graciously sold / traded the lens to me. No, I did not steal it from him. The price will be forgotten soon, the images made with the lens may be un-forgetable if I can get it right. Anyways, HERE is a 3 page spread of first fruits for those of you who are following the ever unfolding story of the re-discovery! Comments are of course more than welcome. I learn much from you all. http://tonopahpictures.0catch.com/Harrahs121308/Harrahs_pg1.html I posted this earlier over at LFForum but some of my friends here don't stop in there and vice versa. Hope it's OK to double post. I have to wait until I'm home these days to post at APUG. Something about the firewall at work I guess.
