Two chairs sit ready for a couples therapy session, in juxtaposition between Michael Daniel Birnberg’s (also known as Midabi) “The Only Other Thing is Nothing.”
The message is profound in the context of the relationships we have with others as members of the human race. Midabi created the installation for the 2019 Bombay Beach Biennale.
The owners of this cat took it for a sail across the Salton Sea from the shores of the abandoned but not forgotten Bombay Beach marina earlier this week, a most unusual sight, to be sure.
Here’s my follow-up photo of the Borrego Badlands taken a few moments after the sun broke the eastern horizon to give you an idea of how deep the arroyos are.
Looking far to the east is the Salton Sea, which today sits 235 feet BELOW sea level. From one to 5 million years ago, the Borrego Badlands were the bottom of an ancient sea..
Sunrise this morning from Font’s Point overlooking the Borrego Badlands. The location is nicknamed “California’s Grand Canyon” because it is straight down from where I made this photo. Kinda’ scary!
Font’s Point is at the end of a 4 mile long “4-wheel drive only” off-road trail in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park near Borrego Springs.
