    Great stuff Jim...thanks for sharing. I think that little HALBEN WA is quite the treasure.

    Any thoughts about making a smaller stop for the Watebury to see if the coverage improves?
    Film is cheap. Opportunities are priceless.

    Cool. But I did notice that it looks like the beginnings of a no trespassing sign in your last shot. Shame, shame.

    Driving down 395 is great--you can see the cinder cones from a bunch of old volcanoes. They get bigger the closer you get to Mammoth.

    I recall fishing on the upper Owens and looking around to discover that we were in the actual caldera. Very cool... that is unless it blows again in our lifetime!

    I doubt I'll get the chance to make a Mammoth trip this summer. If I do, I'll see about a side trip to Tonopah. I'll give you warning so you can leave town (and hide all the camera gear)!

    NO TRESSPASSING ?? What does that actually mean? I've been trying to sound out that word. Is it Espanol? Has me baffled.

    When I was wondering around an old ranch with a PB&J in my hand an old timer came up and said "Caint ya see the no trayspassin sign". Maybe it is french for no food allowed.

    The camera made it and is not in as bad as my 5x7 was before I started working on it. Should be up and running in no time. Un less I get daring and go for making my own bellows.

    Thank you. I used a large lens cap. Filters were mounted in a 62-67 stepping ring and just rested around the barrels (until the wind blows them off of course.)

It's an original unrestored truck and will see plenty of service on desert dirt roads. Plus.......it's photogenic.
    I knew there was a story there. Is this the truck that appears in so many of your "lens test" photos?
