Jackrabbit Homestead in four hours
Hi there! Remember me? Maybe not… it’s been a while since my last post. There has been lots going on behind-the-scenes at Full Circle Images, and I hope to be able to tell you about some of these exciting projects and ventures soon!
This past weekend was crazy busy. As in, I-think-I-slept-but-I-don’t-remember-because-I-was-going-through-lists-in-my-head-all-night sorta busy. Today I’ll be telling you about my Saturday (don’t worry, you’ll hear about my Sunday soon, too!).
If you drive along Route 62, which at one point takes you through Yucca Valley, Joshua Tree, and then 29 Palms, you’ll soon start to see a bunch of little shacks pop up on the open desert. They’re mostly one-room shacks, and for the most part they’re now abandoned. They’re called Jackrabbit Homestead, and I recently learned about them from a friend who had been dying to make a trip out there to photograph. Well, that was all the inspiration I needed to get an organized field trip going! Before you knew it, there was a great little group of folks driving out to the desert, including several photographers and a couple of models.
I won’t bore you with too many details, but suffice it to say – it was hot! We went through a lot of water and sunscreen that day! At the top of this post you see one of my favorite shots from our day trip. It doesn’t actually show any of the shacks, but I love how this shot turned out. You can see the entire album on my Facebook page. I was SO happy with how these photos turned out! It was just the inspirational kick in the butt that I needed.
