West of East Jesus 317 images Created 12 Jan 2022
West of East Jesus is a collection created during a travel-trailer shake-down the west slope of the Sierra Nevada Foothills, then east over Walker Pass, the most southern of the Sierra Nevada passes, down US 395 through the High Desert, down to the Salton Sea and Anza-Borrego State Park, then return with a visit to Slab City, past East Jesus up to Barstow and the Rainbow Basin, on to Randsburg, Cartego, Bishop, Mono Lake and home in a week. As luck would have it, the trailer had a few minor issues, totally manageable, until the day after return when its single axle separated from the frame... It was a visually rich journey to familiar places but using newer tools including mirrorless cameras and an iPhone 12. Along the way was a good return to travel, to visualization, to using new tools and a new collection of photographs creating fodder for other projects throughout 2021.
