    Jorge, ....It is obvious that you are O.K. with the poor israelites facing the prospect of learning how to swim en masse...but let a guy getting a shave get nicked a little and you turn squeamish...I don't know about you sometimes....

    Now see, there you go Donald, focusing on the bad.....ye of no faith! what , you are telling me you would have doubted Moses? Then again I see your point, would have been kind of a bad hair day if God had changed his mind while they were in the middle...But still would have made a great pic....probably would have gotten two great sheets out of the deal....Saddly with my luck probably would not have taken with me the longer focal lenght or someone would have talked me into going with them to take more pics on the other side.....

    Then if I am going to pull a Witkin I want it to be the real thing and with full color....the Aztec sacrifice would be the only time I would use color film...or one of those 8 frame per second digital gizmos.....

    You could always have hooked a motor drive to your 12X20 so that you could have captured the sacrifice in all of it's detail...you really wouldn't mind carrying a little more weight would you??I figure a half horse motor would power the drive just fine. I figure that we could get one of the film companies to pay for the R&D on that project...considering how it would pick up film sales in this down economy.

    There may be humans doing this very thing we are discussing in this thread. A lot of people speculate that "ufo's" are really earthlings 1,000's of years from now traveling back in time to study their primative selves. Pretty far fetched but who knows!

    Interesting concept...I don't know that I have encountered that before.

    Actually the motor drive or the film cassette for the 12x20 is not what would have worried me, probably could find a way to do it. What would have been the killer is the 100000000 mm lens I would have to carry, since I do not plan on getting "that" close to the action. Probably would have weight about a ton...of we would want the lens MC and of modern design with extra covering....

    Jorge,
    I understand&#33;&#33;&#33;By way of information, in the event you wear that beast of a camera out...they have a Folmer and Schwing 12X20 with 44 inches of extension up for sale on Ebay as we speak. That should get you up to about 1100 mm. Will that work? Just to keep you appreciative of your climate down that way, we are at 33 degrees and freezing rain here tonight.

    Well, Glenn wants &#036;4400 for the camera on his site and the reserve he put is 80% of that so that makes it about &#036;3600 for the camera. Although very nice, I rather wait for a new Canham or Lotus at that price. Last time I saw a Lotus on e bay it went for &#036;3500 and it was almost new. I think Glenn is not being realistic on his price.

    Now for the 1100 mm, that would not work unless you want to be part of the ceremony......

    Yep...here we had clear blue skies.....beleive me I do appreciate it, had the opportunity to do a job in Wisconsin in winter.....

    To add to my previous post, since the original question is about a historical event, I would photograph the the beginning of the end of the dinosaurs, their extinction to be more accurate.

    The seeding of earth by aliens (or would that be our ancestors?) or the documentation of Lewis and Clark&#39;s little outing into the wilds of north America come to mind, but every post so far sounds intriguing.
