I may have missed the boat on spring photos, but at least I can attempt to capture summer. The sun is much brighter than I expected it to be, akin to that searing Arizona sun that toasts you to a crisp the second you step out in it. This is Kansas, though, so there's always … Continue reading Summer Looks Like
Greetings famous Arizona! After last week's Epic Rain, we then received the remnants of a hurricane, of all things. I am sorry for all the people who have suffered damage from the rain, but unlike the wacko politicians who usually put Arizona in the news, these storms were unavoidable.

First, … Continue reading It Worked!

Scottsdale, in my opinion, has some of the best Random Public Art in the Valley. Next week, I will be out of town, and the only pieces of digital technology coming with me will be my iPod and camera, so the blog will be quiet until February 6th. This may or may not be a … Continue reading Cloud Bubbles
