Congratulations on your amzing trip and wonderful gallery of experiences. I think that you should try to convert more of them to mono as the one you posted in your message above is great - timeless.
What photo equipment did you pack to support your trip besides the 1Ds MkII?
That's one spooky place I would love to hang out for a few weeks.
Thanks for sharing,
P.S. I had agreat time looking through your pbase galleries. We were fortunate to take a trip around the west coast last summer. We just loved SF!
