  • Gasoline is a very dirty fuel. It puts off this gray-green smoke in surprising amounts. I owe my friend Julian some eyelashes for this photo. I felt bad for yelling at him to get out of my shot while he was trying to put out his face. Then I hear a voice yell, "HOLY SHIT!" There's no sight of them though. They're probably in some second story window. I think, "Oh yeah, this might attract attention." All I wanted was to get that song out of my head.

    And it burns, burns, burns...
