Glass slides used to take photographs

“I rode a bicycle to the landing pad, we put the bicycle in the back of the chopper, and took off. If you want to know the rest, we’ll need some wine.” — Darrell Hoemann (above)

“We used to be limited by our tools. Now we are limited by our imagination.” — Larry Kanfer (above)
