|Mojave Movie Set #1 - Mojave, California|
At first glance it appeared as if it should belong in my abandonment series. But the place was not abandoned. Everything was carefully designed and purposefully placed. It's make believe--a small bit of Hollywood out in the middle of nowhere in the sandy desert.
|Mojave Movie Set #2 - Mojave, California|
What I learned is that this unusual place is the Mojave Tropico Filming set. I have no idea what movies or commercials may have been filmed there. I also don't know if the buildings were relocated to this site (they certainly look old) or if they were constructed specifically for the purpose of film making.
There was a small fence surrounding the set and several "no trespassing" signs. I was careful not to cross the line. I used a Nokia Lumia 1020 to capture these images.
