This is a power plant in San Pedro, California, where we shot scenes from Adventures in Dinosaur City. This was taken with a Canon A-1 35mm. SLR, Tri-X film and 28 mm. wide angle lens. This is a close-up of a living sea urchin, taken in a tide pool near Ft. Ross, California, on a Canon AE-1 with a macro lens. This is the fabulous Tom Burman (right) making a mold of actor Paul Clemens' face for the movie The Beast Within. Taken with a Canon A-1 and Tri-X film.
This loony thing is my cat-son Victor. This was taken with a regular 35mm. SLR camera, then scanned off the contact sheet (hence the scratches, etc.) These are chickens sold in a street stall in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong. Taken with a Canon A-1, Tri-X film and available light. Okay, I know this isn't really a weird photo, but shoot me - I like the expression of sheer joy on the kid's face. This was taken during a "battle-dance" in a high school gymnasium, with a Canon A-1, Ektachrome slide film and flash.

This was taken on Halloween day, and this really was a dummy of the Devil on somebody's roof in North Hollywood, California. Taken with the world's worst camera, a Holga, on 220 color transparency film. Gotta love the Holga's light leaks.This was taken in 1993 on a road outside of Minneapolis with a cheap throwaway panorama camera. What is this "Happy Chef", is it like a chain? We don't have 'em in California, although we have Bob's Big Boys. Mr. Happy Chef looks like Godzilla compared to poor lil' Bob. This was taken with a Nikon digital camera at about 3 p.m. in the afternoon during the Los Angeles firestorms of October 2003; location is the San Fernando Valley.

Big Kahuna Grove chills out at the amazing Bahooka, sucking up a flaming drink for two with his two-foot long straw... This absolutely gorgeous, perfect spiderweb (about 3" in diameter) appeared on my balcony this morning. And yes, those are Halloween lights behind it, and yes, I know it's August This is the courtyard of O'Brien's in New Orleans, taken with a throwaay panorama camera circa 1995. I know it's touristy, but I adored it, and I've had this photo next to my computer for years as a reminder of some place I found lovely and comfortable. Sorry, FEMA, but I still plan on going back there someday.
Happy Halloween! And a fine example of a "happy accident" photo... The Icky Sticky! When I was a tot there was a whole line of these fabulously bizarre toys. I can't believe I still have this one Buster Morton: He's warm, he's full, he's happy...he's weird.
Are they zombies under a lightning-filled apocalyptic sky? Nope - just trick-or-treaters on Halloween night! Click here for more photos from Halloween 2008 at the famed Witch's House in Beverly Hills. Recently spotted near downtown L.A. Hey, it's not every day you see a giant avant-garde carousel horse perched atop a row of freight containers! What an excellent day for an exorcism...beware the projectile vomiting from the demonically-possessed Roxie!
