The 14 Dollar “Hook Up”

Bunny Ranch...Look Out!

This continues the Series from Salton Sea North Shore – this entire Region is just packed with gems for the curious Photographer! This was shot outside an abandoned Cafe which surely, in its time, served the best food West of…well, there isn’t much East of here! I know in today’s terms, “A Hook Up” has a somewhat different meaning that connecting water and electricity to a Recreational Vehicle, so that is why I think it is funny. Only 14 Dollars for a Hook Up! And you can “Hook Up” on The Sea, The Spa or The Pool! Wow! Nevada Bunny Ranch…Look Out…Salton Hook Ups have you on their Radar! (Broken, but fixable).

This is a hand-held three EV HDR (High Dynamic Range) shot. I usually execute these with a Tri-Pod, remote shutter release, but this was a trip just to scope the scene for a future Harley Davidson shoot – you can look through some previous posts from Chicano Park. This is an awesome Bike and deserves more Photographic Love! Recent Snowy Conditions in the mountains we would have to cross (Yes, it snows in SoCal) cancelled the Project last Sunday, but we are replanning before it gets too hot in the Desert!

Thanks for the visit and if you have any questions just drop an email to

  2. What a great find! The sign is just awesome by itself (love that type- is it painted? It’s classic!). The double meaning makes it… double the fun (sad pun) for me. Thanks for posting!

  5. Ha! Funny post. I’ve lived in California most of my life and never been to the Salton Sea. You can bet it’s on my list now 🙂
