to the sea

Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled
we took a drive down to the salton sea yesterday on a whim.  it's such an interesting place, and we only were able to spend a few hours by the visitors center.  there is so much more to see there, including boiling mud pits (which eliot is ecstatic about), that we will most certainly be back soon.  it has this abandoned feeling, not in a creepy way, but more like in a relaxed way.  like maybe it was never supposed to be as busy as it was in its heyday?  this place has been filling up and then drying out again for hundreds and hundreds of years.  it's hard to get in the way of cycles like that.  anyway, read more about it here.  and you'll probably see more of it here too.  i shot some 120 film, i hope it comes out!!

Amazing pictures. Now that you've visited, you need to watch the "documentary" called "Bombay Beach". It's on Netflix. Zach Condon (Beirut) did the music and it is truly fascinating. I think you'd really love it.

I've always loved your photography. Then, I happened on another blog with photogs and the intense beauty, framing, color, and whatever appropriate photog words there are, of your work was simply Magnified.

Not trying to put down the other work, but I suddenly realized your editing.

You are such a talent. A calm and measured talent that is discerning and patient and a wonderful editor.

This is a beautiful series.
