When asked, Bryan replied:
1. If you were to choose a favourite film camera from your collection which would it be?
2. How long have you owned this camera?
3. How did you come to own this camera?
I have attached a photo of my favourite camera and a scanned image. This shot of the Chez Paree was taken around May 1984 in San Francisco. I used Fuji RDP. Please don’t ask for my F-Stop and Shutter speed. I never used filters. I used a sturdy 1960s Linhof tripod. The sign and business have long since disappeared. Years after taking this photo I found this sign in an old photograph capturing a street scene in San Francisco’s International District likely from the 1950s. Back in the 1950s, the sign was for a club called the Barbary Coast. If it is the same sign, and I am certain that it is, then it was re-worked for a strip parlour on Mason in the Tenderloin District!
