Bill at Orizaba (1977)

Orizaba Castle, that is.  It was a faux castle building in Long Beach, California, owned by an eccentric raconteur who sponsored and befriended a number of local artists.  My old photographic sidekick, Bill (more on him here), once lived in a room in the upstairs of the Castle, maintained a darkroom downstairs and often worked and performed in a turret of the castle.  Here is a scan of a somewhat battered print from 1977, not seen in the light of day since about then until I found it under a stack of papers in a sealed box yesterday, of Bill during a gathering of artists at the Castle.
