It's good to know that sports and nature photos are no true Scotsmen.

I was wondering.

Hey Mike. Laforet's series of Aerial NYC pictures is all telephoto.

I believe you may have the name of Gossage's book wrong. Should be There and Gone?

The thing about potatoes, as with all crops really, is that their beauty lies in their diversity https://www.flickr.com/photos/123751526@N02/albums/72157644627500201

Certainly a potato is a difficult thing to photograph and make interesting, but a few years ago I did my annual calendar for friends using cross-sections of fruits and veggies. This was the potato photo - a purple variety, backlit on a light table.

There was a photographer active on the West Coast in the 40's and 50's named Max Yavno, some of whose work was done on 8x10 with telephoto lenses. I remember seeing a monograph of his work in the 1980's. Rixon Reed at Photo-Eye Books in Santa Fe probably has it.
