The Paste Eater

The Paste Eater

“Betcha ten bucks I can eat that whole jar of library paste.” On today’s 110th anniversary, remember: it’s still important to be careful about the things you eat.  Shot last summer in the cemetery at Goldfield Nevada, I’ve been saving this one just for today.  Night, 127-seconds of cloudy full moon, with red white and […]

The Trinitron Hills

A lost image from 2013.  Not sure why I’ve never put it online before, but here it is.  Near the town of Mojave.  Night, full moon, about 17-minutes of total exposure time, with red flashlight too.

The Elite

The Elite Malaise

Studepackard

Studepackard

The end of the once great Packard line, when they stopped making their own designs and turned into re-badged Studebakers. They did this for two years before shutting down completely in 1958. Night, 93-seconds in deep shade, lit with the Protomachines flashlight.

Red Tipped Rope

Red Tipped Rope

Looking straight up at an abandoned mine complex in the Mojave.  Stack of four 6+minute exposures for about 25 minutes of star trails.  Too hot for 6 minute exposures (100°F at sunset!), I had to run more noise reduction that I like and still clean up a million hot pixels in Photoshop.  Lit by the […]

Flintstones Xtra

Flintstones Xtra

Prop from the 1994 Flintstones movie, continuing to decay at Paul’s.  Night, 2-minutes of full moon.

Mid-’70s Ford Granada, at the junkyard. Night, 57-seconds of full moon shortly after dusk, with white and purple from the Protomachines flashlight.

At a Crossroads

At a Crossroads

Lets not go the wrong way.  The Mojave, very late, on a very windy night.  3- minutes of full moon and flashlight.
