This was some of the work in my show at the Panorama Theater in Los Angeles.     The work began in 1999 and was taken between the San Rafael bridge and Devil's Gate dam, a distance of about four miles.
   

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  
  I used the oldest sheet film I could find as well as lithographer's orthochromatic films which are very slow and yield a range of light similar to the original photographic processes.

The work was done on 8x10, 5x7, 3x4 and a Kodak Panoram # 1 camera.  
Recently I have begun working in the Arroyo with hand made dry plates on a full plate  (6 1/2 x 8 1/2 ) camera as well as the nearly extinct format of 5x8".   I will be making tintypes with both cameras as well.
