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 […]

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.

Whitewalls and Mintwalls

This one took about 10 more bumbling laps, staggering around the droopy, collapsing “Sofa Monster” house in the dark, outside Hinkley, California. Watch out for that septic tank hole! Green, purple and red Protomachines flashlight from many angles, with 4:03 of accumulated full moon light.

The Sofa Monster

Home wreckage, near Hinkley, California. Full moon, purple, red, green and white from the Protomachines flashlight. It took 3:39 to make a stumbling lap of this dump in the dark, throwing light from all over the place. And it took about 6 tries to get it right, including yes, going in there and rearranging the […]

Desoto Freezeout

Another night at Big M, with a 1959 Desoto, under the trees with all the spiders. 75-seconds in deep shade, with red backlight, blue reflected light and warm white key light. The rising full moon is just out of frame behind the A/C unit.
