As I mentioned in my last blog entry, I’m busy preparing for the role of Judge Mortimer Harshly in the melodrama The Shame of Tombstone.
Yesterday, my professional photographer friend and mentor Bill Newell took some PR photos for us. In one scene, I get to shave Old Timer in my “gambling salon and tonsorial parlor”. The owner of the Rancho Santa Fe Barber Salon graciously allowed us to use his premises for these photos. I have to get rid of Old Timer in the play, so at the end of the scene I get to “chloroform” him. Mua-ha-ha!
I almost had to take these photos myself, since we were not sure whether Bill was available. While it would have been doable (camera on tripod and tethered to laptop, shutter triggered every 5 seconds or so by a timer), I’m glad that Bill could do it after all.
