Alameda To Los Angeles (and Partway Back) In 90 Seconds!

Somewhere Between Pumpkin Center and Lost Hills

Backing away in photography-geek horror from the blurry-ass Instamatic 126 stuff and returning to good ol' 35mm Tri-X black-and-white shots of the Los Angeles-San Francisco artery that is Interstate 5, we find ourselves in a dusty patch of Kern County in the Impala, circa 1991.

This one was shot from a '65… » 8/20/07 11:30am 8/20/07 11:30am

Somewhere Between Kettleman City and Little Panoche Road

Seeing Bumbeck and Johnson delivering live reports from their I-5 journey made me recall a time when I had both a darkroom and a long-distance girlfriend with a '78 Olds wagon sporting the rare Dashboard Buddha option.
