ACME Strobe Stripe

ACME Strobe Stripe

Fake Road Runner stripe on a crashed ’72 Satellite, at that junkyard in the desert.  I was totally being stalked by some crazy feral guy in this normally abandoned junkyard who must have been performing midnight auto supply.  He never got closer than about 100 yards away and howled at me like a (Wile E.)

Next to 580, late at night. The first climb out of Livermore, up the eastbound side, you know the spot. 337-second exposure, full moon and Protomachines flashlight.

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

An utterly forgotten mid-’70s Ford, the Elite was in the line for only 2 years, as sort of a downmarket Torino, or Mercury Cougar.  In ’77 this body-style became the Thunderbird.  Yeah, nice face under the hood, didn’t even notice it until I got home.  Night, 3-minutes of full moon, with direct red, snooted blue […]

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 […]
