Happy Farmer Bob

A few days ago I talked my old pal Bob Azzaro (you flickerites probably know him as 4PIZON) into going shooting with me. We took his cherry 1961 Cadillac out to Pescadero cemetery where I shot portraits with him and the car. Bombing down highway 1 in the middle of the night in this tank was a real treat. So big and floaty, it’s utterly unlike any modern cars. We drove down the wrong side of the highway for only a short way and only ran over one huge raccoon. Wear your glasses next time Bob! Seriously though, what a blast!


Nice job sitting still here Roberto. His face is lit with a Stinger Streamlight from about 25 feet in front of the car. Red-gelled strobe through the back window and purple gelled from the rear down the side of the car. The shot is all about the hat.
