Skateboarding photographer takes a trip on Route 66 June 1, 2014

Matt Alberts, a skateboarder with a 19th-century camera, takes a trip on Route 66 with a few pals and a 1973 Airstream trailer.

They find abandoned swimming pools — including one I recognize as being at Two Guns, Arizona — and drainage ditches to do their work. They also produced this short film (warning: the skateboarders use adult language you might expect from skateboarders):
