1960’s Pink Elephant Neon

A Mid-Century Modern neon sign, iconic to the Palm Springs area. Since the 1960’s a favorite for visitors and locals alike. The Rancho Super Car Wash is certainly better known as the Elephant Car Wash. Nostalgic, but I personally find it somewhat boring until now having photographed it at night. I especially like the video with the sound of the cars and trucks going by in the background.

My Friday Morning

Doing the start up and watching the run up on the P-51 Mustang “Man O’ War” at the Palm Springs Air Museum. Rob shot the photo, good call!

In The Gym With Randalene

Looking forward to going back to doing photo shoots in the gym. Randalene Sergent in a photo shoot we did for Bodybuilding.com and Iron Man Magazine.

Scenery Around The Salton Sea

The Salton Sea is 15 miles wide and 35 miles long. With so much shoreline and interesting places, there is always something wonderful to photograph. By example I happened to find this random model on a pole at an abandoned gas station and store.

Well maybe not so random. Nora from NYC came out and shot with me for the day all around the Salton Sea. Makeup and Hair Styling and Styling by the Estee Lauder featured artist Blanche LeBeau.

Photographed on a Hasselblad digital camera system.

Last Gas

Thinking there is no Tesla charger here. On a wall in Amargosa on a photo excursion in Death Valley.

INDIANLAND

The 45 ft letters of “Never Forget” references the famed “HOLLYWOOD” sign which originally was “HOLLYWOODLAND”. Hollywoodland was established in 1923 destined to be a segregated whites only community. A large scale exhibit by Nicholas Galanin for Desert X 2021.

Street Scraping

I thought this was interesting. The first steps in street repair and re-surfacing in front of our house.

More Please

Looking forward to going back to doing photo shoots like this one with my very creative friend Gabriella Muttone.

Desert X “The Wishing Well”

One of two cubes in this large-scale installation “The Wishing Well” by Serge Attukwei Clottery for Desert X 2021 in Palm Springs California. For some reason it reminds me of the mysterious Monolith in “2001: A Space Odyssey”.
