100% OF ALL PROCEEDS TO GO TO CHILDREN'S ART CLASSES AT MAMA --You make out the check directly to the 501(c)3 but "CANNOT CLAIM THIS AS A DEDUCTION IF THE VALUE (Fair Market Value = $3500.00-$5,000.00 as a collectible, $500.00 as just another camera) IS EQUAL TO OR GREATER THAN YOUR DONATION." DUH. THANK YOU, I.R.S.

1 VERY VERY VINTAGE 2 1/4" X 2 1/4" (6X6) MAMIYAFLEX TWIN-LENS CAMERA WITH 1 LENS AND MUCH-BATTERED LEATHER CASE (WITH LIPSTICK SMUDGES FROM ANNIE MOSES AND PIZZA FROM MARTONI'S), THE LEATHER CASE IS ACTUALLY SIGNED BY THE TIGER BEAT/MONKEE SPEC WRITER/PHOTOGRAPHER JEFF GOLD AKA "GUESS WHO" AND "JEANNIE-IN-THE-BOTTLE" ETC.

THE CAMERA, LENS & CASE come TOGETHER WITH ONE SIGNED ELEGANTLY FRAMED DOUBLE-MATTED 11" X 14" PHOTOMONTAGE--THIS IS A SINGLE COPY, NOT A PUBLICATION--(which means that you may not copy it or distribute it free or for consideration, by any known or unknown means) OF A FEW OF MY PHOTOS OF VARIOUS HIGH-LEVEL ROCK STARS OF THE 60's (the Average Age of our present band is "dead") TAKEN WITH THIS AND MY TWO OTHER MAMIYAS (which I'm keeping; I'm retired and really only need them for occasional visiting royalty).

To anticipate your question: had two Hassies, one to shoot with and one to keep in the shop, until I discovered the hassle-free Mamiya with the crispest lens I've ever shot with! I used to do a column for Photo, so I've at least tried the very best!

Was editor of Mod Teen Magazine, "14" and grimly waited for my boss to decide to publish "13", "12", and "11" but mercifully he went under sometime in 1969, the Summer of Love, which I do not remember; I was there.

Played the clubs in LA with my band, wrote and shot photos extensively 1967-69 for Monkee Spectacular and Tiger Beat, went on gigs with my fave raves Annie Moses and Anne Moore, whom I met through my buddy Jimmy Morrison. Was PR for Bill Graham, Harry Nilsson, Family Tree, Prunes, Byrds, etc. etc. and managed groups for a while, then, thoroughly disgusted with the Major Labels, depressed over the loss of three close friends, Cass, Jim and Keith, (two of whom died in Harry's brass bed in his "#9" flat in London) retired from the field forever to go into art and books, with a private studio of my own where I turn out tiny runs of 25 each of stuff, plus play with friends like Harry--we made two albums one of which had Iko Iko on it, two weeks prior to his death--albums which will probably go unheard by man or beast. We also did a video duet of "Lay Down Your Arms" which he wanted to donate to the Coalition for Gun Control, but alas, that can now never happen, sigh, along with his video reminiscences of times past and his recording of Bob Sheckley's new sci fi story that Harry read for the blind. The Galaxy Blind Project was actually his idea. Did you know that Harry finally achieved his wish to be a Galaxy Writer, and was actually published in Galaxy Sci-fi magazine before his death? Yep. I have a photo of him reading it in the published issue.

Well, that's the story. Raising money for charity, I looked around and decided to part with Something Cherished !

Hmmmm...must be on a Buddhist Trip today.

Peace.
