Katie said she wanted to see the West. I'm the wrong person to talk carelessly around about the West, so she found herself in the middle of a vast expanse of hot dirt in a timely fashion. Cadillac Ranch at Amarillo. Albuquerque. Canyon de Chelly, Az. Shiprock. Lee's Ferry. North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
I didn't have to shoot once, though I was armed after a fashion. Browning Highpower, a 1961 Buenos Aires police contract gun went along. Not really a gun for the West with it's long distances...but, there you go.
Glad to be home.
Bought the best two 5X7 film holders out of an old box at Camera & Darkroom in Albuquerque. 20$ each. Should have bargained, I guess. I was the last customer they will ever see for that format.
