The common theme of the abandoned buildings I found around the Salton sea was without a doubt, pigeons. These annoying critters were around every corner in every building, and they scared the crap out of me on a number of occasions. Something about the silence of an abandoned building being broken by the flapping of wings is super creepy.
This shot is from a small fire station that has been left to decay. One wall of this room was completely gone, so there was much more light in this room than this shot would suggest. I watched ‘The Social Network’ late last night, and it put me in a bit of a dark mood…I guess I channeled that feeling into this shot.
