I love it. Was this Photoshopped or did you find this scene?

This scene was found completely as is, no photoshopping involved. In 1991 I visited a camp in Joshua Tree that built alternative housing only using raw materials (like dirt) and found objects like tires and bottles. The actual windows on the buildings, many of which resembled large elaborate igloos, were usually open air holes, or makeshift stained-glass windows from bottles. This window frame didn't fit into the round walls of any of the buildings, so someone discarded it and left it on that tree branch. I liked the idea of a window in the middle of the desert. Normally a window helps you see more. In the desert, it was too confining for the vastness of the space. I'll post some pictures of the adobe-like structures themselves tomorrow.
