Stu - my mistake was that i saw a few photos of Colorado where I grew 
and became interested - I ordered a few of his books and when they 
arrived I was so underimpressed that I felt like a dope.  He apparently 
has quite a following but it's beyond me to understand why - it appears 
to be random shooting not unlike the worst we've seen in street 
photography.  Again to each his own.


PS  I'm hoping to get away to colorado in april to see if there's any 
chance I can do better :)
