These guys were catching fish from a rock pier at Newport Beach. The guy on the left had to keep chasing seagulls away from his string of fish.

Storm on the horizon


I took this picture as we were waiting for the sun to set and the full moon to rise on August 13th. We had slight hopes that we wouldn’t have to wait for the moon to rise above the incoming storm clouds, but the clouds kept coming in well past moonrise.

You would never guess that there were about 439,751 people on the beach when I took this picture. It took us about an hour to find a parking space, after being stuck in a traffic jam trying to get to Balboa Beach.

Downtown Phoenix, Arizona


I’ve been having fun looking up our downtown Phoenix buildings. I was on top of my favorite parking garage at 1st Street & Van Buren aiming the camera diagonally to the southwest. From left to right:

Downtown Crane


Crane that was working on building the new Sheraton in downtown Phoenix in the spring of 2007. The building was eventually 31 stories.

Crane & Plane


Downtown Phoenix is in the flight path for Sky Harbor Airport. There was lots of construction in 2007. This is just one of the many cranes working to build new stuff downtown.
