A wealth of posts!

Just the way I like it. I guess it's Marty's doing.
This old LIFE mag photo caught my eye the other day. Hopefully it comes through as large as the one I uploaded.


  1. Great faces and I like the gunslinger pose... it invokes an Ennio Morricone riff

  2. More "Western" vibes with the photo. Cars, gas and space... America.

  3. Great sketches--the Wolverine-y guy looks great, too!

    And of course, LIFE!

  4. The photo is for an essay on Route 66. I guess it's kind of iconic as a route 66 image. I had to do a bit of googling to find a high rez enough version to suit me. The Photographer is named Andreas Feininger. The photo is of Seligman, AZ.

  5. Check out this camera. It must have produced cityscape shots with orthographic looking grids of perspective.
