ABOUT THESE PIX

The earliest of these pictures were taken in Mexico with a Pentax K-1000 body and two or three lenses including a 28mm. I still have the body, but I think Cecilia Montiel has the lenses. Miguel Lima is on the left in Chilangos. Roberto Sosa is in the car in El Patrullero.

Some of the digital pix were taken with a Konika Minolta Dimage 71: a big point-and-shoot with a long zoom. This was a nice camera. Stills on the set of Searchers 2.0 were taken with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2. This is an amazing camera with native 16X9 format: it has survived being dropped, bashed, and crushed.

The most recent pictures - and all the lizard ones - were taken with a Pentax K10D and, most often, a Sigma 70-300mm lens with a 2X teleconverter. Stumpy is still around and doing fine as a mature lizard. All are hibernating now.

The places are an old mine in central Nevada, an underpass in my home town, the environs of the Cinerama Dome in LA, and a corner of Monument Valley.

Rudy Wurlitzer told me recently, "This is the worst time to be selling art or photography. Absolutely the worst time." Rudy knows his stuff. But maybe one or two of these pictures will prove useful screensavers.
