Photograph of the pavement lined with trees and brushes but shrouded in shadows.

This is the way

Picture this. You’ve got the day off. Weather is unseasonably cool. It rained last night. Humidity has set in in. But it’s still below 90F. What do you do? What else do you do but go out for a much-needed long and windy walk around […]

Photograph of a path lined by grass with shadows across the ground diagonally.

That winter, evening sun

A bit strange talking about winter while it’s over 100F outside. Or maybe this is the perfect time to be reminscing about winter days? Evening walks when there’s a slight chill in the air and the shadows grow long. As I write this, I’m chuckling […]

Photogaph of a tree with light behind it. But it's so dark you can only really see the outline of the tree and branches.

In the shadows

Wanted to share another occasion where the photo I had in mind mind didn’t exactly happen. And I’m not exactly pleased with this shot, but there are elements of it I don’t hate. I wanted to emphasize the light streaming through the tree branches more. […]

Photograph of the city of Phoenix in the distance, with views of South Mountain in the foreground.

A stone’s throw away

Waiting for the day when I’ll stop being amazed that these sort of views and sights are just a stone’s throw away. That’s downtown Phoenix in this image, taken from South Mountain. The wonderful thing about South Mountain is how accessible this view from it […]

Photograph of a house covered in graffiti off Roosevelt Row in Phoenix, Arizona.

Covered, head to toe

On 5th Street and Garfield Street, you’ll find this house. It’s covered in graffiti. You can barely see an inch of this house’s original paint colour. I have no idea about the history of this house. Why is it covered in graffiti? Who owns it? […]

Photograph of construction in downtown Phoenix.

Coming soon in Phoenix

Keeping on with this Phoenix theme in posts this week. Because I have a lot of photos of this quite lovely city I want to share. Downtown Phoenix is seemingly always in-flux. New buildings going up. Empty lots seemingly getting filled. It’s great to see. […]

Black and white photograph of the top of a rocky outcrop of a mountain.

That high-top

Landscape in black and white? Sure, why not. Going back to something I mentioned earlier this week—I dig highly textured black and white imagery. And in this image that’s contrasted with the smoothness and significant less contrast-y sky. Why did I choose a black and […]

Sunset in a mining town

Clifton, Arizona. A tiny little town with a population of around 3,700. Just a stop along the way—or more accurately—the start of a fun “little” drive. An interesting, and dare I say it, eye-opening town for this Brit who’s really not seen a lot of […]

Photograph of cacti covered in snow in the foreground with snow covered mountains in the background.

100% more snow

To me. The snow and the cacti just didn’t make sense. It’s not something I think should make sense. Cacti are in the desert. There’s no snow in the desert, right? Arizona proved me wrong. It had a lot more unexpected snow that I was […]
