Located in California's Mojave Desert, with a population of four, Amboy is a quirky little place, with a thriving gas station, a closed restaurant, and deserted motel. I asked and received permission to photograph the interior of the restaurant from the gun-toting owner who also ran the only gas station in the area. The photo sums up this lonely, near abandoned, outpost and its strange surroundings. The old pinball machine adds to the bizarre nature of the place.
