Ty Cobb’s Ghost

The second prop Imperial for the movie Cobb, in that hard to get to corner of Paul’s. This was the last shot before taking a nasty fall onto my shoulder a few days ago (getting better thanks, but it’s still not right in there, MRI tomorrow). Yeah, I landed right on those girders, while setting […]

Orbital Decay 18

Seeing’s how CNN posted this previously unseen image from the book (yeah I said it was OK), there’s no reason to save it anymore. Yeah, there still are a number of never shown images in the book. Fuselage segment at Aviation Warehouse. 112-seconds, set up so that the full moon would just start to pop […]

The Kinky Antenna

Low and wide with a 1958 DeSoto at Big M. I shot it mainly for that antenna and yeah, I put the air cleaner there to hold the trunk lid down. Night, warm white, and a tiny bit of bounced red Protomachines flashlight, in 138-seconds, before the moonrise.

KC’s Masterpiece

Datsun B-210, rescued from certain death, by KC, another visitor hanging out at Big M Auto Salvage. Quizzical looks all around when I asked him to stay after dark so I could shoot this car, even tho I was surrounded by hundreds of rare 50s and 60s cars to shoot. It’s been a long time […]

The Valiant Terrarium

While the rest of the weeds at Big M have been scorched away after the first really hot days of the season, a windshield left in front of this 1960 Valiant has created a lush little eco-system, a fragile green world, under the dome. Green, white, blue and red from the Protomachines flashlight, laid down […]

FutuRustic

This mysterious star shaped window on the abandoned Herlong Junction gas station was like a magnet for me. Decrepit, yet sci fi. Total darkness, white outside, red in.
