This was taken in 1968-69 during an outing to an old, deserted winery in the foothills of Los Gatos, California.

If this was taken in 1968-69, then the 'times past' at a 'deserted winery', then the "times past" are really past!!

Love this shot. I grew up near there in the 70s and 80s and watched the farms and orchards turned into strip malls, office buildings and complexes. This shot says so much about what it was like before it became "Silicon Valley"!!

Thanks for the comments, Ginny. That area now is totally unrecognizable. All that old property is as you say, strip malls, apartment buildings and NEW wineries. A lot can happen in 50 years.

Great study of cowboy gear. Full of interesting shadow and texture. Really works! Thanks for sharing!
