The cockpit of the rocket-powered, convertible ’71 Chrysler New Yorker, movie-prop, at Paul’s Junkyard.  The convertible’s notable because all the exterior body panels were removed, making it not particularly photogenic, from most angles.  Red, white and purple flashlight, with underexposed full moon light too.

Rocket New Yorker

Stopped by my old pal Paul’s junkyard last full moon.  Stuff is constantly coming and going.  The most interesting new piece was this slightly modified ’71 Chrysler, made for a superhero movie. He tells me it never actually appeared on screen in the finished movie.  There’s 3 of them, one’s a convertible.  Red, white and blue flashlight, 123-seconds.

The Valley Junkyard.  Old-school, night-for-day style, tungsten balanced, no added light, the way night shooting used to be.

Making the best of being socked in by smoke from the Blue Cut fire, at an abandoned gas station on the Eastern approach to Baker, California, last week.  66 seconds @ f/8 ISO200, full moon, purple flashlight and various ambient light.
