throwaway no. 5 / the southwest

as promised, the very late, but not forgotten throwaway #5 is probably in your mailbox today, perhaps monday. it was meant to be sent when we were in monument valley in august. the classic western “stagecoach” was filmed there. this film made the then 35 year youngish, and rather handsome john wayne a huge star after years of struggling in “b” flicks. it was directed by one of america’s greatest talents, the very prolific and often cantankerous, john ford who frequently used monument valley for the backdrop of many a memorable film.

we received ours, and thank you very much, and after studying it for some time I have to ask: how is the background image created?
