Salvation Mountain

You've probably never heard of Niland, California, but it's home to one of the most impressive folk art pieces in America: Salvation Mountain. On the wasted shores of the Salton Sea, a man with a vision spent the last several decades building a monument to universal love and his god. Out of the desert rose his technical dream made of clay, hay, paint, and found objects. I find it to be one of the most inspirational things I've ever seen. I have so much respect for those people, who dedicate their entire lives to building something far greater than themselves for no reason besides an internal drive to create.

These photos were taken with my Superheadz Golden Half camera. I've gotten better at planning out my shots so the two photos taken per 35mm frame directly complement each other.
