    Not to worry, not to worry, they love folk from New York, and especially gay folk.

    So they are gay? Or is that some sort of crack at New Yorkers?

    I'm surprised that Avedon wasn't lynched somewhere in the West. When looked at
    crosseyed, a Noi Yoiker should promptly respond that they a lost Austrian tourist or
    something like that. Never mention Noi Yoik. It helps to have some cultural sensitivity
    education first. Watch the movie "City Slickers".

    Drew, you are assuming a whole lot there that you know nothing about. And I don't know anyone that says "Noi Yoik" here.

    I am overjoyed to see the Mizpah open again. I have been very fond of the building since I first saw it and can hardly wait to be a guest. What a treat!

    So have you met her?

    I was being a bit of a smart ass for humor sake. People in Tonopah are no different than anywhere else......mostly.

    No, but I'm trying to set something up with the 8X10.

    Yeah sure. Everybody in Tonopah runs around with brass lenses bigger in diameter than
    the stacks of the rusting steamshovels around there. Wonder what the aliens out in
    Area 51 a little further down the road think of all this? I wouldn't call anything in Nevada ordinary. But if you don't have a darkroom to begin with, there seems to be
    plenty of creeks with enough alkali and strange chemicals in them that you don't even
    need to mix developer. Just soak your negs in the creek at night. But for me, Nevada
    from the air is something I absolutely salivate at the thought of photographing. Perhaps
    a bit difficult with a Verito.

    Area 51 is where all the old lenses come from. The LGM (little green men) bring 'em to me. Verito's work just fine out here!

    Here's another interior shot from the Mizpah;

    BTW that and the good ol' boys was done with a 14" Gundlach Hyperion. 8X10 2D

    Different ghosts. Those ghosts are in the cemetary next door to the Clown Motel. The Lady in Red only hangs out in the Mizpah, far as we know.
