This Blood Red Room – Abandoned Penitentiary in West Virginia

This Blood Red Room (7517)


Photographing the abandoned and apparently haunted penitentiary at night was creepy, interesting, exciting, and sometimes challenging. The penitentiary has imposing Gothic stone architecture adorned with turrets and like a castle, and has an extremely violent history, with almost a thousand deaths within these stone walls.
~~~
Photos were created with only a handheld flashlight in total or near total darkness. Tim Little and Mike Cooper also photographed here the same evening. The former West Virginia State Penitentiary, a National Historic Places Registered facility, operated by the Moundsville Economic Development Council in Moundsville, West Virginia, was built in 1866, just three years after West Virginia seceded from Virginia, and closed in 1995.

Nikon D610/14-24mm f/2.8 lens, 194 second exposure f/8 ISO 200. July 2017. I illuminated the rooms during the exposure.

Photo: A Bowl Of Milk (Milky Way in the Owens Valley)

A Bowl of Milk (7203)


This is Owens Valley Radio Observatory in the Owens Valley, CA, listening to the Milky Way. I photographed this coming back from the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest. To my surprise, I was immediately swarmed by aggressive mosquitos during the entire shoot despite wearing wearing a hat and a hoodie. I got quite a few bites on my hands and even my forehead despite wearing a knit cap.

I used a Pinout remote controller/app to set and trigger the camera.

Nikon D610/Irix 15mm f/2.4 lens @ 20 seconds f/2.4 ISO 4000 on 2017-06-23 01:23.

Photo: Luxury by the Lakeside – Abandoned RV Under The Milky Way

Luxury By The Lakeside (7329)


Someone’s former home near Owens Lake in California, a lake that was fairly large before the DWP and the L.A. Aqueduct sucked it dry. Now it’s common to have enormous dust clouds blowing from the lake. But back in the 1870s, steamer ships cruised across the lake, where silver mined from Cerro Gordo was loaded on to the ships to transport across the lake, part of the trip south to Los Angeles.

I illuminated interior and exterior with a hand-held ProtoMachines LED2 flashlight while the shutter was open on my tripod-mounted camera. Originally, I was going for a 15 second exposure. I never could get all the “light painting” finished. I made it 16 seconds. That I could do. I can only run so fast. I used a Pinout remote controller/app to set and trigger the camera.

Nikon D610/Irix 15mm f/2.4 lens @ 16 seconds f/2.4 ISO 5000 on 2017-06-24 00:44.

Photo: Remembering – More Relevant Than Ever (Manzanar Milky Way)!

Remembering (7025)


The “Soul Consoling Tower” at the Manzanar cemetery. 120,313 Japanese-Americans were forcibly removed to one of ten concentration camps during WWII. Manzanar in Owens Valley, CA, was one of these sites.

Photographed this near the new moon at night with Ron Pinkerton. I illuminated the tower with a hand-held ProtoMachines LED2 flashlight while the shutter was open on my tripod-mounted camera. I used a Pinout remote controller/app to set and trigger the camera.

Photo: The Dark Tower – Manzanar Under The Milky Way

The Dark Tower (7093)


A stark reminder of our dark past, guard tower No. 8 rises above Manzanar Camp. Reconstructed in 2005, it is one of the eight guard towers that surrounded the camp. 120,313 Japanese-Americans were forcibly removed to one of ten concentration camps during WWII. Manzanar in Owens Valley, CA, was one of these sites. I illuminated the tower with a hand-held ProtoMachines LED2 flashlight while the shutter was open on my tripod-mounted camera.

Photo: Grafton Ghost Town-Long Exposure Night Photo with Light Painting!

Hearth Is The Home (6472)
Grafton ghost town, Utah, first settled in 1859, and also the site of several movies, including the bicycle scene in “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”. While photographing here, a car pulled up, and some young people got out and began exploring the area for ghosts. They said that they will record on their iPhones, and sometimes, voices that they didn’t hear initially would show up there.

So yeah, this is a real night photo. I illuminated the exterior and interior with a hand-held ProtoMachines LED2 flashlight while the shutter was open on my tripod-mounted camera. I wanted to make it look like the family was still home, perhaps relaxing by the fireplace. This is not a post-processing creation. No pixels were harmed during the creation of this photo. 😀 I used a Pinout remote controller/app to set and trigger the camera.

Nikon D610/28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 lens @ 21 minutes total, with seven images stacked, each 3 minutes f/8 ISO 200 on 2017-06-06 21:38.
