The Buddha & The King

Unique finding of the rare 10x8 Paparazzo down at the end of Lonely Street, right outside the Heartbreak Hotel.

Well found Walter! I used to look for visual surprises by keeping a ready-to-go unfolded 8x10 camera on the back seat of the car and an extended tripod down across the back seat passenger foot well. An exposure within two minutes was possible. But I never spotted anything as quirky as The Buddha & The King.

I certainly travel (travelled) with the kit accessible Maris,
but it was alwways set out for quick lens changes as here when I switched to the Nikkor-M 450mm 1:9 when the opportunityy arose to get into the mosh pit for a closer view.

An excellent demonstration of "working the subject". Sometimes one shot is not enough even if it is on 8x10. Geez, you were lucky getting a park on the A22 right behind the Flash Trash truck.

Thanks Maris,
