None of the transparencies
I showed as a commercial portfolio
were copies of prints (or copies of anything else for that matter).
They were all original chromes (that's what we called them)
from the actual studio and location shoots
(food, products, fashion and annual report stuff).

Sadly, they were all stolen
(probably thrown over a mountain side somewhere)
along with $10,000 worth of Nikon, Mamiya and Leica gear
my Shure bullet microphone and a 12 volt amp (for my harmonica playing)
(probably sold for drug money $.10 on the dollar)
on a sales trip to Santa Fe
back in the late '80's.

The Santa Fe police snickered about
"solving the crime" or ever recovering anything.

Broke my heart for 3rd time.
