To continue from the last blog...After I shot Desert Shores we did a 3 mile journey to Thermal, California. This location, like the previous was a place that I have visited before but I wanted to explore more. This town is more of a wasteland if you will. A lot of the streets are dirt roads and this is the second time I have seen these ATV bandits, with black flags hanging off the back end and loud exhausts throwing sand and dust in their wake. I have perhaps made that sound more cool than it really was. I have also noticed that the rise of graffiti art on some of these abandoned buildings, which most of the time for me is a bummer but I see it from all sides.
I did shoot some of the same subjects in 2015 and some new. The Park Estates recreational suites was new to me but be advised that pigeons will go into a full dive bomb in your general direction if they feel threatened. I glad I had that wool flannel on! haha. Only jokes. Stayed tuned for part II of this series in the future. I appreciate you looking. Enjoy
