Matt takes "Photographs of the bizarre, the unusual, the sublime, and the beautiful found in my travels through the deserts of California and Nevada." This particular one is captioned:
Along Angeles Crest Highway in Los Angeles County’s San Gabriel Mountains, I came across this man playing drums. He set himself up at the edge of the road, overlooking a vast canyon through which his drums echoed, and beat along to the music playing through his headphones. As I was making the photograph, an emergency truck sped by, sirens blaring — cacophony shatters the mountains’ silence.
