Back on the hill at Boron AFS/Federal Prison. Red and green-set Protomachines flashlight.
Junked 3rd-gen Firebird Trans Am at Eagle Field, 2013. No idea what it was that decomposed in the front seat, but I’m certain the circa-1994 Jeff Gordon air freshener made it more fragrant. Nice UAL kids-wings pinned under the TA logo too. Night, total darkness, warm and cool flashlights.
A little too intimate/a little too infinite at Boron Federal Minimum Security Prison. Abandoned since 2001, so it’s had a chance to air out, but it was still pretty funky in this building. I liked the full moon light and shadows coming in from the left, so I went out and mirrored it with red light from the […]
Here’s a special treat for all the aircraft nerds. It’s a 1973-vintage Continental DC-10, mothballed on the tarmac at Kingman, AZ, shot in July, 1996. 18 years ago, this month! I recall it being about a million degrees and a million % humidity, with some refreshing rain on the hills, just out of reach. Look how close I could […]
The barracks/prison blocks, the ring of guards housing just beyond, and the city of Boron beyond that. Basically, looking about 45° left of yesterday’s post. Boron AFS/Federal Prison, abandoned in 2001. What a fun, lonely place to explore in the middle of the night. 517 second exposure, under full moon light.
Unusual 10-sided pre-fab metal workshop building at the top of the peak, next to the radome, decommissioned Boron AFB/Federal Prison. That’s a mirror farm and Kramer Junction in the middle distance. Night, 151-seconds, full moon and a little red flashlight.
Idyllic bas relief sculpture and mural inside the boarded-up church on the bluff, at decommissioned/abandoned Boron AFS/Federal Prison. Out the doorway, the harsh reality of the high desert night, and an endless stream of semis on Highway 58, about seven miles away. 167-second exposure.
