January 4, 2017, Venice Beach, California – I had the pleasure to attend a special ceremony to commemorate the 50th anniversary of The Doors in their hometown and on the streets where the band was formed. The Doors surviving members John Densmore and Robby Krieger were both in attendance for this special “Venice Lighting Ceremony” where they declared it The Doors day in Los Angeles!!!
Contact prints were used to produce proof sheets from entire rolls of 35 mm negative in order to aid in the selection of images for further enlargement, and for cataloging and identification purposes. Finding the contact sheets from legendary Rock N’ Roll photo shoots has now become my newest obsession.
In September 1970 during a break from his trail in Miami, Jim Morrison along with his Beverly Hills attorney Max Fink and friends took a quick two day trip to the Bahamas for some fishing, snorkeling and rum drinking.
This photo of a bearded Jim Morrison holding a six pack of Budweiser “Tall Boys” with girlfriend Pamela Curson behind him and friend Michael McClure flipping off the camera is just awesome.
I recently came across this amazing photo of Jim Morrison standing at a church pulpit and thought I would do a little research on it.

The Doors “Waiting For The Sun” album cover was taken in 1968 by photography Paul Ferrara 1968 Los Angeles, California. I tried to dig a little deeper and find the exact location in Los Angeles where this photo was taken and it seems as it was taken on a cliff off of Laurel Canyon Blvd.
Pamela Courson was Jim Morrison’s long-term companion having dated him from when she met him in 1965 until she found him dead in a bathtub on July 3, 1971 in France. On April 25, 1974, less than three years after the death of Jim Morrison, Courson herself died of a heroin overdose on the living room couch at this Los Angeles apartment.
