Howdy Ya'll!

I got such a reaction to the sepia toned version of the stagecoaches that I decided to apply a similar, but different, edit to a photo that I took of two of the locals in Tombstone. Very nice people who were more than happy to allow me to take their photo.

What I learned in taking this photo: Yosemite Sam is real and he's alive and well.
Damn, this is great! Timeless image, Sir! Nailed it. Thank you!

Wow WOW and *WOW*!! In every way this is a marvelous and beautifully composed image! You KNOW that when people look like that in a place like Tombstone, they're going to be very comfortable with photo requests! This one can't be beat!

Saw quite a few folk like this around Rohan's. Wasn't game to take their pic. This guy looks like Gabby Hayes - now there's a blast from the past

The backdrop to this really sweet portrait is superb and puts the couple in context. The processing is def in tune with your subjects. Fine composition too..

Absolutely fabulous image Ron beautifully processed and captured, it takes you back to the wild west period 1866 to 1886, without a doubt it looks like a genuine original shot, Fav:)

Ron, email just sent re: project. Glad you are inspired to try film again. There seems to be a resurgence of it. Kodak just announced it will be producing Ektachrome again. From them willing to invest in this new venture it is a good sign. I shoot film as often as I can and time will allow. It is very enjoyable. L.

Sorry for the mass reply, but the response to this shot completely overwhelmed me. That's the third highest number of favs I've ever received, and to be honest I'm a little shocked. Maybe I should just hang out in Tombstone and take pictures for the rest of my 365 career! Seriously, thanks so much for the comments and favs. It means a lot to me.

See what I referenced about "architecture here and reverting to *the old*"... Now take a charming old place like Tombstone...

Location location location!
