I’ve been working in West Texas recently and since I drive there, I try to stop at rest stops and historical junk if I have the time. Texas almost always has clean, tidy and comfortable rest stops. This particular one was in between Wichita Falls and Lubbock. The light was nice and it feels almost like some weird Rockwell moment, but more strange.
Just kidding. But seriously, these old Dot Blue flash bulbs would blow your mind if you were in front of one, let alone three at the same time. Each bulb has a guide number of 550′ at ISO 100. Some back of the envelope math indicates flash output around 700 watt/seconds, which is intense. All three together with this sweet clover leaf hand-held-light-of-the-stars flashgun? Revelatory.
