Bombay Beach, Salton Sea, California

 

Bombay Beach is an interesting town along the eastern shore of the Salton Sea. A small community still resides in the half abandoned town. Some time ago, shifting water levels flooded the town and a wall was built around it to keep high tides out.

 

This area of town exists on the outside of the wall and it was once a trailer/RV park. Somehow, it became buried under several feet of mud and sand -- trailers and all.

 

I know... I've posted several shots of this same trailer now. But it was a very interesting subject to shoot. And from what I understand, this particular trailer has completely collapsed since I photographed it. I won't get another chance to shoot this structure, so enjoy the opportunity to see it here on Flickr.

 

Here are the other shots I took:
