Default Lost America

Light painting is actually a pretty old school photography technique. Essentially, you "paint" objects with different color light bulbs and then take exposures of varying lengths. The results are sometimes from out of this world. The fella that runs ...

I did this for one of my photo classes, except we used B&W film and just a flashlight. The possibilities are pretty endless with night photography.
My favorites are the Western Roadside

Troy's Work is simply amazing I'm good friends with him, and he's a really cool guy too! If you get a chance pick up his book, believe me it's worth it. I have his first book and loved it so much that when I ran into him at my buddies wedding a few weeks ago, I made him walk out of the reception dinner, go to his trunk, and grab me a copy which I bought right there on the spot under the dim light of a street lamp. Just like a Crack deal, in fact if a cop had been around we would have been questioned for sure. Can you imagine the look on the Copper's face when he realized Troy was slingin' books out of his trunk and not drugs, it would have been one of those, " Oh wow! what a bunch of loosers" looks. Great!

Very cool! I wish I could get all the pictures to load with 2 hours. A bit slow but worth the wait!

That is amazingly cool!

This makes me think.

Why are all of the cool, americana, unique things being destroyed to put cookie cutter buildings, shopping centers, etc. in thier places?

I would much rather go to a Jetson-esque dining establishment than the local McDonalds... places like that had style that I just dont see anywhere today.

Thanks a lot, Ryan... this made my day

His second book just recently came out. It's called: Night Vision: The Art of Urban Exploration

I love his work.

I am an architectural lighting designer (design lighting for buildings) and I have known about this site and his work for a while and I think it has been posted a couple times before. But, still I think it is pretty f'n nice work and I dig it for sure and don't mind being reminded about it. Light painting might be an old technique, like a lot of things, but this guy makes some nice art. For me it covers my profession, lighting and architecture, plus adds in some cool old cars, American landscape, history and art all in one and makes it cool to look at and see in a different way.

Thanks for posting yesterday Mike, I caught that as well. And thanks to Ryan for hitting us again with some off beat stuff to keep our brains working.

My kid turned me onto this site a couple of years ago. When I went back yesterday I was glad to see more was added to it. I think it's some great photography work.

Looks like the HAMB traffic took down the site. Check out the power of a blog post. I bet they are scrambling, wondering WTF!?
