    I am only a hundred miles from Montana, but alas, the quiet, flat part...
    Jim MacKenzie - Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    As is often the case (e.g., vampires, werewolves, mermaids), jackalopes are mythical creatures with a a biological basis. Rabbits infected with a particular papillomavirus can get benign growths on the head that resemble (to the creative eye) antlers, thus the name jackalopes (jackrabbit, antelope). Of course, humans have exacerbated it with most colorful creations!

    I am not kidding they are real. The females are often mistaken for rabbits. Go to that website and you will see that you can buy stuff and mounted jackalope bucks and does.

    They are real it tell you. Just like the Velveteen Rabbit.

    Jackalopes aint nothin. Their everwhere out here in the western states. Sometimes they even run in packs. Shot me a 4 point buck once. He was so big that feller fed a famly of 4 fer hell, damn near a day! If you want to talk bout somethin serious like them vampires and werewolves, you want to talk about those chupacabras. Now them thangs are ugly and their real bloodsuckers. If one of them latches onto ya yer gonna end up lookin like a rag doll with the stuffin pulled out.

    As in 'bees'.

    For music, bring along Frank Zappa's "Overnite Sensation". This will either put all questions to rest or create more. Nothing about jackalopes, though (from Frank).

    Why not? It's on a smaller scale.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
