Please tell me, I’m interested.

What would you own?


  1. I would sell everything and buy a very large motorcycle. I would use that motorcycle to go wherever I wanted to go. Just get a map and follow the lines. I would own a motorcycle and a guitar and nice boots.

  2. I like what the above poster wrote. Yeah, motorcycle and nice boots...

    But the desire to come up with something of my own... I'd pick up and spend a season in Paris... prolly autumn. I'd find an atelier and bring home women and photograph them. Hasselblad and 4 x 5 film, make 16 x 20 fibre prints with selenium tone. Shoot during the day, print thru the night... Late mornings would be at the street café, having espresso and croissants with real clove cigarrettes. I'd only own the cameras and motorcycle to get me around... and oh yeah, the boots - Black spit shine Cocorans...
