Close up of the damp and shady back end of yesterday’s trailer. 20-seconds in deep shade, warm white flashlight.
Early 1960s Spartan Royal Manor trailer, left in a shady spot near the flight line, at the abandoned NASA Crows Landing airfield. Now gone, fate unknown. 211-seconds, dappled full moon light, red and blue-set Protomachine flashlight. Unpleasant in there.

Once I saw how the star trails were curving around this crusty ear, I set out to make a stackable series of long exposures. That’s 34:23 of star trails. Straight full moon light. After a lot of […]
Radar dish on one of the portable NASA launch control trailers, forgotten at the decommissioned and abandoned Crows Landing airfield. Now gone, scrapped, along with almost everything else on the base. Red-set Protomachine flashlight, with a couple of spots of snooted lime, to intensify this machine’s natural anthropomorphic qualities. 53-second exposure: short, to keep the […]

The insides of these were packed with mostly vandalized, transistor and tube-based analog electronics. And spiders. Lots of spiders. It took all of the […]
