Wind in the North of Coachella Valley

At the northern end of Coachella Valley, civilization peters out and the wind kicks up. The seemingly endless fields of wind turbines are (unsurprisingly) well-positioned: hopping out of the car to get this shot, I was nearly knocked over by a grit-enhanced gust, the likes of which I’m not sure I’ve ever felt before.

Like Jurassic Park for Horses

The endless equestrian expanse of the Kentucky Horse Park means that it’s truly possible to get lost within the wide expanse of fields, rings, and museums. It’s a whole Jurassic-Park-like work, but (to paraphrase Ian Malcolm) “At [Kentucky Horse Park], when the [ponies are bad], they don’t eat the tourists.”

Ten Years of Decaseconds: Return to Campbell Hall

Our first post on Decaseconds debuted on this day ten years ago. I can scarcely believe it myself! In the intervening decade, both of your humble photographers finished doctorates from Berkeley and moved to new states across the country.

Looking back to how photography has changed since 2011, the rise of platforms like Instagram (have you visited Brendan’s or mine recently?) brought with it whole new aesthetics and a new generation of photographers. In spite of the possibilities that such channels allow, I still enjoy the independent posting style of Decaseconds.

In honor the past decade, I returned to RAW files from the evening of that first post and selected another image of the old, now-demolished Campbell Hall in its mummified form. Here’s to another decade!
