    Okay, this is even better. I was in Yosemite this past weekend and met a very nice young lady and she volunteered to carry my tripod and went with me to various locations to shoot. My walnut tripod is about 13 lbs. so it is no light weight thing. She had never been to the park and I was her guide. I only wish I could have gotten rid of my two companions!!

    What we all need...... my 6'2" blond 23 year old assistant! And me all of 5'7"! size does matter...... I had the 11x14 with me!!!

    Out, devil, out!

    I have an 8x10 I need to learn, not to mention a 4x5. I don't want to become one of these people who runs a museum -- I want to produce!

    I really like that format, though. Maybe someday.

    Was she driving a red Ferrari?

    She had never been to the park and I was her guide.
    Next week were having a picnic at Point Lobos!

    Yes, I have been interested for some time in figure studies. In the wilds of Yosemite...... both Ansel and Edward would be jealous! Yeah, right! But then you never know....

    At least I know that I will have someone to do the book for me!
