For a little bit of inspiration for my upcoming trip to the States I watched Wim Wenders Paris Texas. Together with his book, Written In The West (images made while looking for locations to shoot the film), it was a delightful and inspirational time. It had been a while since I last seen the film and I had forgotten just how many locations I had headed for thanks to the work of WW. The Wagon Wheel Cafe, were the T Rex rests, was one of those places and I would always a stop off on my way back to LA from the Salton Sea. I look back on the image with great fondness and look forward to finding more creatures lurking in the darkness..
