Tombstone, Arizona, USA provides a multitude of photo ops of interesting characters. This is another version of my “Stagecoach Driver” that I came upon while going through my older photos.

    You are an amazing woman.
    You certainly have made an artform with capturing your portraits.
    I always ponder over them every time you upload one.
    Whether it’s the love of that time period or that life style or just seeing the western movies from Hollywood, I will always admire these characters, this style and what it represents….
    The problem for me to capture this sort of portrait is that you have to travel to far north. Nothing like this exists in Victoria, as it’s only in Northern Queensland and The Outback….
    Keep ‘em comin’ gal……

  • OMG, Larry! Thank you so much. I’m usually happy getting three or four good shots when I photograph an event like this, but this particular photo opportunity garnered about 25 excellent shots. The last three that I’ve put up were from a little more than a year ago. I was going back through them to see what else was there when I rediscovered these. So glad you like them!

    Like this one alot. Better than the one we played with.

  • Thanks. Me, too. I also did one with two versions of this guy. I actually have three shots of him, but thought three in the photo would be a little busy. This is the same stagecoach driver that’s in my displayed photo, but taken at the first Wyatt Earp Days we attended. He’s dressed very differently in the displayed photo. I really like this background because of the light area which can be moved around to get a better effect.
