Photograph of a flock of pigeons sitting and standing on and around some stairs leading up to a door.

Conflab

There’s something oddly suspicious looking about these pigeons. Or is that just me? Maybe it’s not that they look suspicious, but there’s something oddly human about how they’re all appear to be waiting for… something. Or I’m reading way too much into an image of […]

Looking very civil

Taken at that time of the mid-morning on a weekday when folks are at work, the lunch break is still a little while away, and restaurants are prepping for a mildly active Monday lunch time. This cute little storefront is Hot Daisy Pizza on Roosevelt […]

Sunrise through the blinds

Is there any other scene that doesn’t immediately scream “Arizona desert” than this one? Three to four different types of cacti and some warm, morning sunlight. Yes, this is a very pleasing scene for me. Counting down the days to cooler weather and more outdoor […]

The greenest I’ve seen (in summer)

That day, wandering around the neighbourhood it struck me just how green everything was. Sure, the Sonoran Desert has been dubbed the greenest desert in the world. But with the recent rainfal, everything looks so much more green and lush. Whether it’s the hillsides and […]

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 in a park winding towards the left, with the foreground in shadow.

In the shade

Misty, moody days at the park. It doesn’t happen often in Phoenix. In Boston, probably a bit more often. The shaded paths were a little shadier. And beyond the border of the shade, everything felt a bit unsaturated thanks to the mist that morning.

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 […]

Photograph of a close up of palm tree leaves shrouded in shadows.

Shrouded

When you see striking shadows, shapes, and light begging you to take a photo. I think this may have just been a tree on the side of the street near the apartment block that I live in. It was the middle of the day. The […]

Photograph of an interior of a living room with an open patio door in the background letting a shaft of light in.

Feeling a little dramatic

There’s a short timeframe where natural light is actually able to enter my home. More specifically, the living room. And in that short time frame, there are some wicked shadows thrown in the room. And I love it. The only downside? The lack of natural […]
