Snicket Float

While compiling images for the next book, on SoCal car junkyards, I keep running across images that I’ve forgotten about and never posted online before. This is the prop 1960 Imperial Ghia-bodied limousine, an original body and custom interior on casters, from the movie “Lemony Snicket” in storage at Pauls. Shot in 2013, it’s since […]

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. […]
