    Jim was the most obliging host for our trip to Tonopah, NV.

    Watching Jim work with his 2D and collection [never ending ] of brass lenses was a lesson in itself. I was amazed at the physical size of the lenses. Yet the weight was less than I thought.

    Jim's images look "older" than the real scene if that is possible. His images are a time machine.

    My eyes saw old in the foundry, however I saw the images how I knew my lenses would record them -- and by and large they did just that. Modern, sharp and dare I say it after looking at Jim's pics -- 2 dimensional.

    The Chev in the weeds is a case in point.

    I shot with a 360mm barrel lens and while my image is technically good it looks like it was shot in 2006. Even with a shallow DOF my lens is sharp but the out of focus areas are too defined.

    I was also amazed at the image on the GG of the 2D of the tailstock. Even on the groundglass the image was glowing.

    I know I was there at Tonopah but I do believe Jim has a special time machine and can transport himself to another dimension. I think he dissappeared once or twice.

    I'm convinced that Chev is NOT the one I photographed.

    If you ever get to Tonopah strange things do happen and you will never be the same again.

    Thanks Jim -- a very memorable day -- I'm not certain what year it was though.

    Chiller, (so you missed Jim for a second or two?)

    You are absolutely correct in this, however it is best not to discuss the facts here, It has been verified that Jim was here in Las Vegas performing in an afternoon matinee on the strip at just about the same time as you claim you were watching him working with the big lens. Of course when he was off stage here....no one could vouch for his whereabouts:o :o :o :o :o

    Steve,

    I am very interested in seeing your images of that that so we can (accounting all personal differences of the photographers) compare Jim's and your images in terms of modern and antique (lenses).

    @ Jim:

    Is it the same point transfer that emulates light leaks in the left hand top of the image of the scales? It's a very intriguing effect.

    Thanks!

    Yes, in that photo you can see how far the transfer bled into the black rebate.

    Steve, I suspect your images have their own unique vision as well. I'm looking forward to seeing them.

    Jim,
    Excellent as always. I will be aquiring (shortly..) a Wollensak Velostigmat Series II 12" in a #5 shutter (as you recall, I've been on the hunt for the shutter). Regardless, this one does have the softness ring - it will be interesting to compare the two.

    Regards,
