Going Home

Going Home From the flight deck of an RV with it’s nose torn off, at that junkyard in the Valley.  Those of you old workshoppers may recognize this area as “Imperial Acres” – once home to some 125 Chrysler Imperials from the late fifties to about sixty-five.  Sadly, most have gone, probably to the crusher.

Fish

Fish

Scratched into the back door of a 1960-ish Chrysler Imperial, on the lot at Big M.  Maybe it was the owner’s dog’s name and he always sat with his head out this window.  Red, white and green from the Protomachine flashlight, in 51 seconds of deep shade, at night.

Overnight Sensation

Overnight Sensation

Restored ’58 Plymouth Inside the barn at Big M.  “Hey John, what’s that big pile of records?” “Those were mine when I was a teenager.”  Right on top was one of my personal favorites from the ’70s: Frank Zappa’s “Overnight Sensation.”  One of the all-time great surrealist album covers too.  All I had to do […]

Jukebox filled with Pat Benatar and other gems from 1980, moon-bathing on the lot at Big M Auto Salvage. Is that Christine lurking in the background? 312-seconds of full moon, with some white and bounced red, from the Protomachines flashlight.

El Quebrados

El Quebrados

Yeah, it felt like a scene right outta the Grand Theft Auto game while I was shooting it.  It’s a Majestic, parked by the Pay ‘n Spray in Bone County, just waiting to be hopped into and driven away.  Actually, it’s a Buick Regal, at Eagle Field, near Fresno and it isn’t going anywhere.  Night, […]

Hulk Smash

Hulk Smash

A random Stan Lee moment, found in a Central Valley junkyard earlier this week, completely inundated by smoke from the Camp Fire.  It was the smokiest night of shooting I’ve ever experienced.  Night, 38-seconds of full moon with a little warm white flashlight.

Special Starters

1956 Buick Special, parked in a warehouse for so long, not only did the tires go flat, they’re crumbling to dust.  Very close quarters, there is a shelf full of starters just out of view on the right,  Night, total darkness with red, white, and blue light, from the Protomachines flashlight.
