Good job, excellent compositions. Except for the electric sign over the bar, those photos could have come straight out of the wild west of the 1880's. Black and white seems appropriate, you can almost feel the frontier spirit.

Nice to see you standing in the mirror of that Bar
One photo out of focus is a mistake, ten photo out of focus are an experimentation, one hundred photo out of focus are a style.

I missed this thread, somehow. Jim, that really brings back memories, of my favorite western bar - the Palace Saloon in Prescott. It was built in 1877 and so is the oldest bar in Arizona - have you seen it? The Earp brothers and Doc Holliday gambled there. It burned down in the 1900 fire on Whiskey Row, which is famous because the patrons of the saloons were exasperated that the fire threatened their drinking so they carried the bars across the street to the town square so the firefighters wouldn't interrupt them. (I'm not making this up.) In the case of the Palace that really took determination because the bar is some 40' long IIRC. Anyway, the Palace was rebuilt after the fire and continues as a saloon and restaurant to this day.
