Salton Sea is like nothing else. A ring of towns becoming ghost towns. Dying fish lined the shore, RVs being swallowed up. The smell is different. The sight is different. It is like nothing else.
Yet life goes on. May be from a NYC band doing a music video, or the local kids who are never tired of the yet another sunset.
The full set is here:
I hope you enjoy it.
What do you do when the World ends? Why, shoot a music video of course:
And here’s a rainbow for you:
Salton Sea was dotted with vibrant communities a mere 30-40 years ago, but now the sea is dying, and so are fish, birds, and the communities. Each beach, each community, has a different story to tell. Today I only a few hours spent at the Bombay Beach. I even took a couple pictures of a rock band doing a music video in a decayed house, and a couple local kids driving a dune buggy, but those pictures have to wait until I get home and develop the film etc.
Meanwhile, enjoy some cell phone pics. I think it’s a Megapixel camera? Don’t know how to zoom though. These fancy phone/camera is too smart for me 🙂

I hope to get up at godawful hours to catch Sunrise at the Joshua Tree National Park.
