    Maybe there would still be some pebble embedded in the tread from Hernandez, NM. That alone would double its worth. Just by thinking about
    it, you'll double your own photographic skills. It also helps to grow a beard and wear a cowboy hat. I don't have either. Perhaps that's why I'm

    Just think about how much better pictures his camera took than yours..

    That's gotta be it.

    I dunno. I split a big public retrospective with him a long time ago. But all my own work was in color at that time. Come to think of it, I did have a small black beard back then, but for some reason it didn't cause my prints to come out in black and white. I shot exclusively a Sinar back then, so maybe that was the problem - I had the wrong Swiss camera all along? Guess it has a lot to do with style. So now for my impending geezerhood I've started using a lovely old Sinar Norma - can't get classier than that - and even found a totally unused genuine Glendale Calif made Kelty Tioga pack from the 60's to carry it. Now all I need is to turn a replacement ash handle for my old wooden ice axe (it snapped half on an, uh, er, unplanned thrill ride down a steep ice slope)... Don't want to grow my beard out however, or people will recognize my real age.

    I agree it may be "worth" $1,000,000 but if the maximum any buyer will pay for it is $100 that's what it's worth. I learned this by bitter experience.
