The toy truck was given to Wynn by one of my clients. It had belonged to her son. We passed it along to Dae, the son of my good friend Peter, who lives in Maine.
I was still shooting film in those days, in this case 120 color negative film in a Hasselblad with a 150 lens. The lighting was simple, two lights on the background and a medium softbox and some white reflectors on Wynn. The hardest part of the shoot was wiping up the drool from the seamless.

The Phantom slowly, gravely, silently approached. When it came near him, Scrooge bent down upon his knee; for in the very air through which this Spirit moved it seemed to scatter gloom and mystery. It was shrouded in a deep black garment, which concealed its head, its face, its form, and left nothing of it visible save one outstretched hand. ... It thrilled him with a vague uncertain horror, to know that behind the dusky shroud there were ghostly eyes intently fixed upon him, while he, though he stretched his own to the utmost, could see nothing but a spectral hand and one great heap of black."
