plainclothes professional stalker. I was chosen for this role
based on my supervisor's (favorable) evaluation of me as a

who is a photog's assistant brought one up to the valley and
spent a day playing it across the scenic vistas. The pics are
superb, but as yet unpublished. If and when they're
available online I'll link to them.
