I follow a few really interesting photographers on Flickr.

Jorge Guadalupe Lizárraga posts a lot of photos from the southwest, often New Mexico, that really show off the desolation of smaller towns and rural places (do you still call it rural if it's in the desert?). A lot of his work is on film. Unfortunately he has embedding disabled so I can't share any of them here, but click on his name a check him out.

eyetwist also does a lot of really cool desert photography, often at night with long exposures. He does a lot of really cool stuff with "light painting" which is a technique where he uses a flashlight to "paint" an object during the long exposure.

That is awesome stuff.

Ludlow, CA? That place looks like a complete ghost town. It's sad to see entire towns as relics when new large-scale communities are popping up because people want something entirely fresh and new. Ghost towns are essentially large-scale litter. I'm sure I'm not telling anyone here anything new, though.

It started as a mining town, and was on Route 66.   Mines play out, and Route 66 was deactivated.   It's used for movies now.

^^Sadat was killed in 1981.

Love how the last two need no caption whatsoever.
