Interesting Spaces

Sometimes you find yourself in an interesting spot.

Here we were exploring the powerplant at Oak Knoll Naval Hospital.

The boilers were nice and crusty, peely brick and rusty.

Found a door that opened and decided that light painting would be fun.

so i set up a remote speedlight just inside the door way to light interior, and painted exterior w flashlight.

Unfortunately when i reached to get it, i managed to knock it over and it dropped down inside the boiler itself.

Leaning in to try to reach it i discovered that the opening was just wide enough for my body…

So I wiggled thru to get my speedlight, then looked about and realized what a cool space!

so decided to paint some more, with gels on my flashlight.

had my wingman shine a light in the square observation portal on the wall.

It kinda gets lost in my bright lights.

Don’t know what was inside, but it was pretty deep with flakes of some metal…

Fortunately i wore gloves… and a mask…!  😉

Now, would like to learn how these things worked!  Guessing flames came from the round openings, warming the water in the pipes that ran across the wall and ceiling..

A night in the desert

Explored a number of places over a whirlwind weekend in Arizona.  One stop was an abandoned rest stop, under a full moon.

Peak Design’s Capture Pro v2 Camera Clip

Peak Design's Capture Pro v2 Camera Clip

Capture Pro v2, brilliantly designed to hold your camera on any strap or belt.

I was sooo stoked to get this last week. Had signed up for Peak Design‘s kickstarter campaign, thanks to a post by Trey Ratcliff. Such a cool idea. And a brilliant execution, you can tell a lot of thought went into it as each feature works well. Tested it, worked great moving camera from belt to Manfrotto tripod. Looking forward to using in the pits at Treasure Island Music Festival when i have to shuffle dual backs or change lens.  Will post more reviews soon.
