Five Sevens

About 30 minutes of exposure at night under the full moon. Shot on a hot summer night in 2018, finally got around to stacking this thing up and scrubbing it all together. I think I caught all the gaps in the star trails, and got most of the heat noise cleaned up. At Pearsonville, with […]

Coalinga 1989

These are 30 years old this month. From one of my first night shooting expeditions with my brother Tom. This was an abandoned cotton mill, south of Coalinga, California. Each one is about 8-minutes on Kodak 160T chrome film. Full moon with a little gelled strobe. The last one is Tom and I the next […]

Wide-Eyed Grimace

You’d grimace too if you had spider webs all over your face. Root beer brown 1956 Packard Patrician, at Big M Auto Salvage. Complete, another barn find. What a tank of a car. 1:47 in deep shade, with purple and green reflected into the grille, red snooted into the headlights and three quick hits of […]

The Black Fin

Shoulder getting better. Six weeks post-op, the physical therapist still has me doing hand slides up the door jamb and other gentle isometrics to restore mobility. Still no lifting or movement using the muscle, but life is finally starting to normalize. Sling no longer required 24-7. Typing at the computer only a little painful now. […]

Signed Copies of Boneyard

Happy to report, 3 weeks after the operation, that my shoulder is slowly healing. They have me moving it passively, but I still can’t move it using the muscle at all. With the physical therapy, it’s sore all the time, but nothing like the pain of the first week. It’s gonna be a long, slow […]

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 […]
