Mr. Mahan,

I've been looking for you! I've got some photos you took in 1971 - it was in the North Harbor neighborhood off Riverside Drive (I grew up there). They filmed a scene for the film Deliverance there in '71. One of the photos is actually a photocopy of a photo which is now long gone - it has one of my friends in it as a kid - along with Burt Reynolds and Ned Beatty. Do you retain negatives or prints from that far back? Hopefully so, need your help! Thanks, John

Hi Bill:
Great photos! I was particularly interested in the photograph entitled "Amish Family, Tennessee", image No. 67629124. I am writing a book exploring the connection between swiss cheese and the Amish people of Holmes County, Ohio. The Amish vehicle you photographed is a milk hack, which the Amish farmers used to use to transport milk to the local cheese house/factory. Under what conditions could you grant me permission to use that phtograph? Thanks, Henry Troyer

Hi William, thanks for taking the time to view some of my galleries and for the comments. The particular image of the tiny faces where just done in Photoshop. It's been a while since I created it but I think all I did was reduce the size of the original image and created a pattern overlay of it and layered it onto the original image.

Hi Bill. Thanks for you comments about "Around". To answer your question - it's not the original color. Its the underside of a circular staircase on the Scottsdale AZ Civic Center mall. The original color is brown paint on wood. -Andrew
