The Lonely Homestead

The Lonely Homestead ::::: 29 Palms / Wonder Valley

A 282 second exposure under the fullest of full moons, at another of Wonder Valley’s hundreds of abandoned homesteader shacks.  I went inside with my Protomachines flashlight and coated the walls with red light.  The idea of someone living in such a small structure, in such a harsh, remote place . . . it’s beyond comprehension.  This achingly lonely place didn’t even have an air conditioner–and it was 90° at midnight.
