Not to worry, not to worry, they love folk from New York, and especially gay folk.
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".
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!
Follow me on Twaddle!

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.
Jim, thought the ghosts were at the Clown motel?
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;
