There was a desert wind blowing that night. It was one of those hot dry Santa Anas that come down through the mountain passes and curl your hair and make your nerves jump and your skin itch. On nights like that every booze party ends in a fight. Meek little wives feel the edge of the carving knife and study their husbands' necks. Anything can happen. You can even get a full glass of beer at a cocktail lounge.

These are a few samples from a series shot with my old Olypus OM-2. I used 400 speed film with an an attached motor drive while i chased my friend RJ Lavallee through the woods at full speed.
