the photo road trip continued to the towns surrounding caifornia’s surreal salton sea…standing at the base of the former lake’s shores we were 200 ft. below sea level and felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. remnants of life – scattered trash, an abandoned motel, half empty trailers, appliances stuck in the mud – are everywhere. they are proof that life existed here, in this former resort town, when the salton sea once drew people to its shores. people still come, but instead of the vacationer it’s the odd tourist, or more likely the curious photographer. i absolutely loved exploring this area, although at times it was completely freaky. wandering in and out of the abandoned homes was a bizarre and incredible experience. i treasure all these photos!
