Gorilla Skull

Yeah, that’s what I see anyway.  Looking into the tail of a broken B-52 on the fringes of Edwards AFB.  Late at night, with full moon and red flashlight.

Mouse Station

Mouse Station

The old Pony Express stop, Schellbourne, Nevada, is now an abandoned motel and gas mart with an overlit rest area across the highway.  I took advantage of the location’s bright sodium vapor lights to fill the reflective stainless steel side of the pump orange, adding blue, red and minty green from the Protomachines flashlight.  There’s […]

Voyage to the Bottom of the Soul

That lonely 76 station on 15, at Fort Irwin (Allen) Road. Summer 2015, it’s a lot more tagged up now. 2-minutes of full moon with lime and red flashlight.
