LYING ABANDONED UNDER THE SCORCHING HEAT OF THE CALIFORNIA SUN, AN ABANDONED AIRSTREAM REFLECTS THE SUN AND CREATES A STARK CONTRAST TO THE DESERT BACKDROP  BEHIND !

I'm sorry I was not good enough, but I tried to be !

Photographic Journeys are always voyages of discovery.  I had been driving for most of the morning from Amboy.  The temperature was never below 36 degrees and I’d only seen the odd roadside stop and gasoline station since breakfast.  In the middle of absolutely nowhere and miles from the nearest turnoff sat an abandoned Airstream with a single resident slumped in the corner of the empty trailer.

He didn’t want to be photographed and he wouldn’t even speak to me but the message was clear.  Something somewhere along the line he’d got derailed and sadly never managed to get his life back on the rails.
In no way was he aggressive or threatening, but sad and silent. I bid him farewell and good luck.   I wonder where he is now?

The stark contrast of the still silver, aluminium trailer against the dark blue and cloud-heavy sky were perfect for a contrasty B&W image on the D810
