Crawling with big ones. Dig the ovoid steering wheel, so futuristic. Fisheye, full moon, lime, red and cool white light. 114 seconds in the dark.

Effie and the Golden Hills

I hiked out to this familiar abandoned California farm last full moon. Last time I was here I did mostly interiors in the rotting and moldy house on the property, so I was happy to stay out in the fresh summer air this time. CALTRANS was doing night roadwork on the freeway in the distance. […]
