Photographer's Note

A few days ago, I posted a photo from Trona, California, with this description of the town:

"[Trona is] a company town which does not appear to be prospering. The town sits on the "shore" of the giant white lakebed known as Searles Dry if waiting for the water to return and the fun to begin. Trona is dominated by its chemical plants, which process the soda ash, borax and other chemicals taken from the lakebed. The place has an otherworldly feel, like a mining station on the moon (after massive NASA budget cuts)--as if one should keep a wary eye on the hilltops in case a phalanx of cyborgs should appear."

Alongside the lightly-traveled main road running through town, the town fathers have set up benches, with a little shade tree behind each. For what purpose? So that people can sit and watch the emptiness, perhaps.
