Snoopy, the junk B-58, lost in the high desert. Night, 162-second exposure. Purple, red and green light from the Protomachines flashlight.
The mach-2 capable Hustler’s super-sleek underbelly. No doubt Snoopy’s the rattiest B-58 in the world, but of the 8 left, he’s the one in the most picturesque location. Purple and red set Protomachines flashlight. 100 second exposure, under full moon.

It made for a surreal juxtaposition, these big vistas, combined with these blank, mundane rooms. A fun night […]
