An old prospector scratches out a golden treasure from California’s Mojave Desert and stores his loot in some mason jars. That’s the story I’m trying to tell….
And trying to tell that story has me on a little hunt for some treasure of my own. But the loot I’m after isn’t the shiny kind.
Nope — it’s the rusty kind.
Just a few more finishing touches and I should have enough visual interest for a nifty little historic photo vignette. That’s great way to handle the need for historic footage when you can’t afford / don’t want to mess around with a reinactment and you don’t have the rights / budget for any archival material.
While the old saying “all that glimmers isn’t gold” may be true…. In this case the gold doesn’t glimmer at all.
Gold, I tell you. Gold.
