The Valiant Terrarium

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.

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.

Steel Manta

Barnacles on the side of a chrome covered ’58 Buick. No, I didn’t need scuba gear to take this. Wettest winter I’ve seen in my 10+ years of visiting Big M Auto Dismantlers, the cars in the shady spots were all spattered with moss and lichen, even in April. Warm white and green, direct and […]
