Out by Joshua Tree, CA and close to a strange architectural structure called the intregratron, there's a place called Giant Rock, home to (purportedly) the world's largest free-standing boulder.

Reading into this mysterious place will only yield even more mysterious results.

  1. Sacred Native American site - check.
  2. Former home of George Van Tassel - an aircraft mechanic for Douglas AircraftHughes Aircraftand Lockheed (Also a UFO convention organizer) - check.
  3. Site of a suspected WWII German Spy detonating himself while underneath it with dynamite - check.

In light of these connections, my idea for this place was to re-create what may have been George Van Tassel's vision while living under the rock - that an alien from from the planet Venus woke him up, invited him onto a space ship, then verbally and telepathically gave him a technique for rejuvenating the human body.

I used light-stencils for my UFO's and a step-ladder to give my alien some extra height - as the giant rock is seven stories tall!

 

Psychedelic Coast

Location: Big Sur, CA / Settings: F5.6, ISO 100, 215 seconds

This is by far the coolest tent I've ever slept the night in. I felt like I had to do the psychedelic vibe of it justice with a colorful prism style light-painting.  

The Devil's Brick

This image is based on a dream I had where I was walking on a beach and there was a sudden Tsunami, everyone starts running from the crashing waves and as I start running, a girl with a worried look shoves a bag to my chest. I look inside the bag for an instant to see a glowing red brick - hot like coals. I quickly bury the bag in sand and look up to see a charred man with cracks of glowing red on his skin in a suit looking down at me - he says 'I believe you have something of mine'.. I reply ' I believe you are mistaken' and then wake up.
