A starry but cloudy night at Two Guns, Arizona, a place of Apache massacres in death caves, drifters, gila monster bites, calamitous fires, a strange zoo, a movie star owner, and general misfortune. And it was also a tourist trap of sorts, featuring some of the above, including the zoo. I illuminated the shade canopy of the abandoned gas station with a handheld ProtoMachines LED2 light painting device during the exposure as the stars and the nearly full moon drifted across the night sky.
There's such a beauty, however faded, in these vintage vehicles. An old Chevrolet flatbed soaks up the winter moon. This was photographed at a decommissioned WWII airfield in California. Interior illuminated with a red light, exterior with a warm white light from the ProtoMachines LED2 light painting device on a chilly night in February. American Natives sometimes referred to the February full moon as the snow moon, and while we were missing snow in this area, it still seems fitting. Maybe, we will sneak this into my second book of night photography, which I hope to finish by fall.
