There’s so much to see in this world
On the bicycle, on foot, all over town
Oh, what skies we have
water gushing through the desert
a little oasis of culture in the evil empire
I’ve been bicycling on various portions of The Loop — a wonderful bicycle route that’s comprised mostly of riverside paved trails with no motor vehicles — and these are some of the things I’ve seen. Oh, and I’ve included a few shots from my first trip up Mt. Lemmon (only made it to mile marker…
These scenarios happened in “ordinary” life, and fortunately I was able to capture them.

A random gallery of images collected from “ordinary” life lately.
In March, we planted three Desert Museum palo verde trees, two screwbean mesquites, and five velvet mesquites in the backyard, after moving a lot of earth around and building a patio.
These images are from a wonderful visit to Michigan, where I connected with family, friends and places.
These days it’s rare that I get to visit this island, where as a teenager I began to listen deeply to the wind in the forest, and where I started to notice the crows. I still feel a sense of being on an edge between worlds when I visit this place, especially outside the town.
This collection of images is from a delightful road trip through California in April and March, 2013.
The summer of 2012 offered a plethora of amazing monsoon skies — and the range of colors, cloud textures and surreal energies provided a bounty of photographs. At least three rainbows appeared, too.
Biosphere 2, near Oracle, was a surreal place to visit. It offers visitors an unique perspective on certain aspects of 1980s history, as well as a look at how scientists continue to find new ways to use the facility long after they unsealed the hatches. I’ve never seen such a strange blend of natural life…
A weekend hiking around and camping in the Pinaleno Mountains was just the right thing to do. The weather was perfect, and the thin, clean mountaintop air was cleansing and refreshing.
After our visit to the Phoenix family in the Ozarks, Becca and I spent a couple of days enjoying Albuquerque. I lived there at age three for a year and a half, and it seems that my parents split up while living there. I’d always had a case of bad vibes about Albuquerque, but after…
This is a selection of photos from a recent visit to my sister’s family in the Ozarks. Life there is very surreal from my perspective. It was delightful to experience a small slice of the world up there in the hills. I rode my bicycle around the town of Winona, Missouri in the July heat…
This collection of images is from the journey across New Mexico and beyond en route to visit my sister and her family in the Ozarks in July. Becca and I stayed for a couple of days in Albuquerque before returning home to Tucson. We didn’t care for much of the “New Mexican” cuisine we found,…
These images are from a visit to a special, secret desert location in 2011.
