Last time I shared some of the wildfowl, struggling to exist in their traditional home of The Salton Sea in California. This week Cindy shares the sad sight of the beach resort of Bombay City where the residents are creating artwork from the chaos. There is also a link to an article about the crisis. As always Cindy’s photographs tell the story very eloquently.
Bombay City on The Salton Sea,
a graveyard for ships that will not sail,
and houses with no one home.
People live here and create art out of trash,
“Scrap was here!” (Click to enlarge and see.)
And this artist thinks we should, “Take the Day Off.” (I agree with him/her.)
This artist made a tree out of trash,
while boats still point, “Straight on til’ morning!”
Hopefully if the sea can be repaired,
Bombay City can be too.
Hope & Cheers to the people in Bombay City who make art and order out of chaos~
Note: I was surprised to see an in-depth story on the history and crisis in The Salton Sea, in ‘The Daily Mail’ a few days ago. Check it out if your are interested in this sad story, which is, of course, all of our stories:
