The Milford Express

The Milford Express

Late night semi trucks stream by a quiet abandoned spot on US 395, north of Reno.  142-seconds of full moon at 2:26AM.  Late and tired, I was mooching off my pal Riki’s lighting while he shot the pumps, I just set up off to the left, sat back and put my feet up.

The Hopper and the Sink

The Hopper and the Sink

Loading area at an abandoned mine complex on the Eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada. 252-seconds of full moon and natural LED flashlight. There’s more light than you might think here. Most of the frame would be completely black without the flashlight.

Silver Haze

Silver Haze

I’d think you’d normally be able to see for 50 miles out here by Honey Lake. This summer it’s like Fontana on a bad day. Full moon for 250-seconds, with a little LED flashlight.

Smoke and Rafters

Boneyard Luchador

More airliner junk at Aviation Warehouse.  The chin of the tripod was resting on the bottom of the doorsill, just barely low enough to squeeze the Joshua Tree into the arch.  The wrestling mask spotlighted on the box is a random water stain/weathering on there.  Some people see Jesus in grilled cheese sandwiches, I guess […]

Bodie Moonrise

Bodie Moonrise

I gotcher throwback right here. Bodie ghost town, near midnight, as the moon finally rose and the clouds cleared. From when I guest lectured at one of the Keimig night photography workshops there, back in June ’03. 6 minutes of full moon, f5.6, 100VS film, red-gelled POS million candle-power flashlight that weighed a ton. Slightly […]
