When I think about driving to Las Vegas from L.A., I usually dread that boring 3 to 4 hours drive. There is a high chance of slow moving traffic on certain spots, and some long stretches of nothingness through the desert landscape. So when I had to make that drive this past weekend, I tried to look for interesting places to visit along the way. The Bottle Tree Ranch can be found on the historic Route 66 between Victorville and Barstow.
Apparently, some guy named Elmer just decided to build this in the middle of nowhere. It has grown over the years and the "installation" has gained some notoriety. We spent around 15 minutes just look around the forest of bottle trees and saw other groups of tourists stopping by. Too bad we weren't able to speak to Elmer directly that day.
My Journey into Leica...
A path not to be taken lightly, not without reservations, and not without dedication, but the results can be sweet, OH SO SWEET! This is a documentation of my trials and tribulations into the world of Leica Rangefinder Photography, and I hope you'll enjoy coming along with me.
