    The peanut stand was shot in 1999 but the others date from the 70's and were 35mm shot with my Leica system.

    A couple more from the 70's. The tattoo and boys are from Petros TN near the TN maximum security prison where James Earl Ray was housed. For those that don't know the name he killed Martin Luther King. The children were shot in a remote Mennonite colony in Tennessee again in the 70's. Again Leica M gear and a variety of lenses except the square image which was with my Rollei SL66 and 150 Sonnar. Film would have been TX most likely.

    A few more. The first image of the girl was from 1069 shot with an M2 Leica and 90 Elmarit and the film was TX. The mill and office were with my Technika 70 and 100 Planar and 53 f4 Super Angulon. The film would have been panatomic-X. The final image of the boys was shot with my Rolleiflex MX-EVS 2 and from the mid 70's.
