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.

Which Way?

Is this the exit or the entrance? And if it is one, coming the other way is it still the other? Doorway art installation on Bombay Beach at the Salton Sea. I understand that it was originally complete with an actual door. Fujifilm X-T3 camera.

Bombay Beach Boating Fashion

Just last week the Bombay Beach Biennale 2018 was a great success with art installations and ballet and opera and fun. Sadly I missed it with flying duties at the Palm Springs Air Museum. However I have been doing my own art installations at Bombay Beach and around the Salton Sea for a number of years.

Bombay Beach boating fashion with model Xtine. Eco-friendly, everything we packed in we packed out. And we walked away with our Art created with a camera. The Art created  by Xtine, myself, a Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting.

Many installations of the Bombay Beach Biennale 2018, such as the the Opera House, The Hermitage Museum, Drive-In Theater, The Institute, Angler Grove, and Nine, have become permanent gifts to the town. I will certainly be going back out to take a look. Go visit and also remember that the Salton Sea is one of the most environmentally important places in the country and must be protected. Thank You!
