Aloha from Palm Springs, California
A three day weekend is a pretty good reason to drive from San Diego to Palm Springs, California. I never set foot in the pool and came out ahead in the casino so it was an oddly perfect weekend. My fellow loungers were the perfect company and made the trip what it will be remembered as being. For now it was an epic road trip from San Diego to Palm Springs, CA, with the photos here presented as a record of things that were seen, and might have otherwise been forgotten.
You must play with purpose!
As we do not have air hockey in San Diego, we took full advantage of the tables. As Palm Springs caters to the rich & famous, the pucks are made of solid gold and beautiful women bring you cocktails of blasphemous potency.
Different windmills currently in use in Southern California.
Clean, renewable energy should be one of everyone’s favorite things. Recycle cans, use permanent plastic water bottles instead of disposable plastic bottles and do what you can to get wind and solar in to the mainstream.
Traveling through the colossal windmill farms of southern California was electrifying and terrifying. So much energy is generated by the windmills, that the nighttime desert floor glows in a site so indescribable that no photographer has ever been able to spoil the view by looking through their camera’s viewfinder to take a picture.
This vacation gave me a chance to remember that I love to create art, just for the sake of doing it.
My friends and I were on a mission in Palm Springs, and we failed to complete it. As warriors in a hazy battlefield of glass, fire and liquid we ultimately returned home defeated in war but soaring higher than any living things have before in spirit… We had become The Trifecta.
The day we left for Palm Springs, this perfectly aligned throw took place.
With a start like this, we knew it would be a good trip and that there would be some great photography taking place. Our Triangle Zen arrives when the disc is thrown.
Unfortunately, even famous photographers must deal with traffic.
