Bombay Beach Street Art

Styrofoam mannequin head street art in Bombay Beach, California

Bombay Beach on the Salton Sea is the creepiest place I've ever visited because some people do still live in this almost-abandoned little town with it's post-apocalyptic vibe. When you're prowling around the broken down shacks and see a person walking in the middle of the road off in the distance, it's hard not to think about zombies. But people really do live in this decaying seaside town where Mother Nature is winning and it's important to be respectful if you visit.

My friend Denise isn't into weird stuff like I am so she waited in the car while I grabbed a couple shots at one spot in town on our way down to the beach where all of the structures are encased in a thick coating of salt, including a piece of bobcat-like heavy machinery. There was some really strange stuff in Bombay Beach, I can't wait to go back when I have more time to explore.
