Another quick iPhone shot featuring light and shadow, this one taken at the Salton Sea’s North Shore Beach and Yacht Club. Designed by Modernist architect Albert Frey in 1959, the once-abandoned but subsequently-restored structure is a relic from the Sea’s mid-century glory days.
I ventured off the mountain not too long ago and took myself on a little outing to the Palm Springs Art Museum. I had been feeling uninspired and depleted since finishing a big project and, just as I had hoped, an afternoon surrounded by art made me feel much better. Here’s a quick iPhone snap of the front stairs leading up to the entrance. :-)
Hello September. Wow, is this year flying by. While the passage of time seems particularly alarming to me this year (you know what they say and, yes, I am of a “certain age”), there is definitely an upside to the end of summer when you love the desert as much as I do. The temps down there will soon be tolerable which means it’s almost time for desert day trips and photo safaris. In the meantime, I took this impressionistic shot of an agave the last time I was down there. I think it was 110 degrees that day. Give or take. :-)
