Warner Springs Cow Pasture

Nice photo of Warner Springs Cow Pasture

I was on my way out to the desert, and I saw a bunch of cows grazing in a pasture in Warner Springs. The cows themselves were really nothing to speak of, but the pasture with the clouds overhead looked interesting. So, I pulled over and took a few shots. I ended up converting this shot to black and white because it looked way more interesting than the color shot.



Salvation Mountain

Nice photo of Salvation Mountain

Salvation Mountain near Niland, California is a handmade mountain built by Leonard Knight. It is made out of adobe bricks, discarded tires, automobile parts, and thousands of gallons of paint. I met Leonard Knight several times a few years before his death in 2014. He was always in a good mood. He let me take several portraits of himself as he would always tell me that Jesus loves me. If you have never been to Salvation Mountain, then I would encourage you to make the trek to the Southern California Desert. Salvation Mountain is one of those places you really need to see in person.



In-N-Out Murrieta

Nice photo of In-N-Out Murrieta

Being native to Southern California, I eat at In-N-Out Burger from time to time. I must admit that the burgers and fries are fantastic. I am also a fan of their T-shirts. I own probably about a dozen of them. It always amazes me how long the wait in the drive-thru is. I don’t know how people can wait that long just for food. I normally just go inside and order and take it to go. Much faster. This particular photo is of the In-N-Out Burger in Murrieta, California.



Leonard Knight Salvation Mountain

Nice photo of Leonard Knight Salvation Mountain

I met Leonard Knight several times a few years before his death in 2014. He allowed me to shoot a few portraits of him. He struck me as a generous and caring individual. All he wanted to do was show me his mountain and let me know that Jesus loved me. If you have never been to Salvation Mountain, then I encourage you to visit. It is amazing what this man built. I don’t know what kind of condition it is in today. Hopefully someone is keeping it in good shape.
