Photo: The Chapel Of Santa (long exposure light painting night photo, Santa’s Village)

The Chapel of Santa (0109)
Santa’s Chapel in Santa’s Village near Lake Arrowhead, CA was originally built in 1955. It closed in 1998. The village survived a nearby fire in 2003. Now, a new owner is creating an environmentally friendly action adventure park, with hiking trails, zip-lining, and many other activities. And, yes, Santa’s Village. The owner granted me permission to photograph Santa’s Village at night. I wanted to photograph by the full moon, but the skies were very cloudy and foggy instead. I photographed anyway, and the fog created some very eerie images.
This photo was taken at night. Illuminated by a ProtoMachines LED2 flashlight and a full moon. 264 second exposure. This is not a post-processing creation. No pixels were harmed during the creation of this photo. 😀

Capilla de Santa en Santa’s Village cerca del Lake Arrowhead, CA fue construido originalmente en 1955. Se cerró en 1998. El pueblo sobrevivió a un incendio cercano en 2003. Ahora, un nuevo propietario es la creación de un amigo de la ecología parque de aventura y acción, con rutas de senderismo, tirolesa, y muchas otras actividades. Y, sí, Santa’s Village. El dueño me dio permiso para fotografiar Santa’s Village en la noche. Quería fotografiar por la luna llena, pero el cielo estaba muy nublado. Fotografié todos modos, y la niebla creado algunas imágenes muy misterioso.

“Kill Bill” Church: Next To Nowhere, Mojave Desert (from Quentin Tarantino’s movie)

2235_kenlee_killbillchurch3-mojave

Please click on the photo to view it larger and more clearly!  Thanks!

The “Kill Bill” Church from Quentin Tarantino’s movie, featured in a scene where Bill had attempted to dispatch Uma Thurman’s character in a bloody hail of gunfire.

Aren’t most of us intrigued by those desolate, hopeless desert scenes we see, thinking, “Where is that?” It conjures up different worlds. And true to form, the “Kill Bill” Church was desolate, nearby to nowhere.

The church was also featured in “True Confessions” with Robert DeNiro, a movie based loosely on the Black Dahlia murders.

By the time I got over there, driving from Trona Pinnacles where I had been taking photos of the Milky Way all night, the sun was just starting to rise. I would I knew I had very little time before I would not be able to get a night photo, so I worked quickly.

And I had other concerns. As I pulled up, I noted the very bright single porch light. I had been hoping that there would be no lights on the church. This would make light painting the church very tricky, having to equalize the light with the flashlights on the rest of the church and surrounding area that I wanted illuminated or the harsh contrast would make it so only the porch would appear, with everything else dark. It’d be a pretty good technical challenge.  And these things take time.  About thirty seconds, in fact.

f/11, 30 seconds, ISO 100.

Equipment:  Nikon D7000, Tokina AT-X 116, Feisol tripod.
