  1. Marina claimed to remember taking a picture, and later claimed that she may have taken more than one. This does not necessarily mean that Marina took CE133A, CE133B, and, 133C, it does not necessarily follow that Marina took what we know as the Backyard Photos. This will make sense to those familiar with my hypothesis. There were originally four Backyard Photos and they were a creation of Lee Oswald and his crew. They are a complex puzzle created at least partially for our benefit.
  2. Sandy, I think the Imperial reflex used 620 film and yielded a square negative. CE133A and CE 133B were commercial square prints. 133C is not square because the negative went missing and what we were left with were rectangular prints (taller than they are wide) made on the Dallas Police Departments enlarger (133C-Dees, and 133C-Stovall). There is also the rectangular enlargement given to de Mohrenschildt (133A-de Mohrenschildt) that was enlarged from the square negative.
  3. Hey Michael, This might be easy. Google “Matt Ehling, Minnesota Filmmaker” and lots of stuff comes up. For starters, he founded “Public Record Media” (2375 University Ave W Suite 200, St. Paul MN, 55114 p 651-556-1381 f 651-641-8573): https://www.publicrecordmedia.org And here’s Matt Ehling’s production company, ETS Pictures: http://www.etspictures.com It’s just a suggestion, Michael, but why don’t you get a hold of this guy (I’d do it, but I’m shy).
  4. Maybe Bill Kelly’s last paragraph bears repeating: “In the meantime, we have yet to locate the Minnesota film maker who has hours of tapes of Wheaton giving more details on these affairs. If anyone has the time and inclination to track Matt Ehling down, we'd like to hear more from Mr. Wheaton, whose bonafides are established by all of the great names he provides, and a scenario he provides that rings true.” http://jfkcountercoup.blogspot.com/
  5. Oswald had two rings, a wedding ring and a Marine Corps ring. I'm kind of interested in the watch (?) he's wearing in 133C and not wearing in CE133B. And that's one messed up left hand in CE133B.
  6. Don't bawl me out yet, Paul, I'm kind-of poor so I ordered it from my local library. They have five copies and I'm now up to number one on their list.
  7. Hi Jeff, You wrote “It should also be kept in mind that the Imperial Reflex camera is an extremely cheap low-end camera, and its evident flaws help the analysis to the extent it can be determined which images originated with that camera.” You’re the expert, but I’m going to take exception with this phrase, “…it can be determined which images originated with that camera.” I want to nitpick one word - “originated”. I believe that the Backyard Photos are a first-class photo forgery, and I agree that the Imperial Reflex was used, but only used in the very last stage. It’s my be
  8. Hi James, With my limited ability and equipment, my calculations will have to be approximate. I’ll use two methods. Method #1: In the picture below, I simply made five semitransparent copies of the papers and stacked them on top of each other. The top of the stack is level with the top of the Oswald figure’s head. If the papers are indeed 11 inches wide (tall in this case), then this stack of five papers is 55 inches tall. Now we have to make a judgement as to how far it is to the ground from the bottom semitransparent pair of papers. With the pair of papers on the left as
  9. CE133A CE133B 133C Hi Chris, Of the three Backyard Photos, only CE 133A and 133C display the keystone effect, CE 133B does not. Since the camera used appears to have been held about waist high, there should theoretically have been almost no keystone effect whatsoever, since the tallest structure we can see is only about 9 feet tall. However, the keystone we see in the two BYPs is backwards. In principle, the taller the structure, the more pronounced
  10. Yesterday John Butler wrote: “Sorry, I can't post a BYP with arrows showing the shadow directions. Were only allowed a 1000 MB and the.gif I posted takes up most of that.” What you need to do, John, is store your photos at a photo hosting website. Many of us used to use Photobucket but they now charge big bucks if you want to post your archived pictures to, say, a forum like this one. This is called "Third-party posting". But there are plenty of photo hosting websites that offer free third-party posting - I use postimage (easy to set up, simple to use, and free): https://p
  11. Ray Mitcham wrote: “Tom, unfortunately you, like David and Butler, are wrong, See the above photo, I posted in reply to Michael. The sun wasn't low in the sky. it was produced early afternoon at a similar time that the BYPs were supposedly taken.” Yes, in the photo above we have two shadows that appear to be converging, and as Michael and David have pointed out, “appear” is the key word. If extended, the two shadows would appear to converge at the horizon, but If the terrain is flat and the sun is the light source, one could extend the shadows into the distance and they would remain
  12. David Josephs asked: “Can anyone explain the ghost image insert and why the background of all the byps are skewed? It should be a perfect match” This sounds interesting, David, and I’d like to consider and maybe respond to your question but I’m confused (I'm 75 this year, and not getting any smarter). Could you please describe more thoroughly the problem as you see it, and your questions about it? Use lots of words if need be. Tom
  13. Okay Ray and Chris, you’ve convinced me. I forgot that the Oswald figure was about to fall over. Below is CE 133A with the 12 degrees of keystone removed, and the photo properly straightened: If we could now get the Oswald figure to loose the Tower of Pisa lean, his shadow would be much more congruent with that of the post. Below is a screenshot from the “Wrong Way Shadows” video posted by Ed LeDoux earlier on this thread. The Oswald model is standing erect, and one can now more accurately compare the two shadows under discussion. Tom
