Not Canada


Getting a little bit of a mixed message here, with the Spanish name and the Canadian flag and the Vietnamese restaurant and the actual location in Arizona. Sometimes things are more confusing than they need to be.

The timing was lucky for that trip to Phoenix – my pal George was just back to Arizona after a couple of months in Japan and we spent a good afternoon together.

We took a little hike (where we saw a nesting Great Horned owl and one of her babies), and on our way back down, got to see the new growth on the cholla cacti nicely backlit. (We liked the light-on-cactus a lot better than the very close subdivisions.)

I walked by this window several times each day I was in Phoenix; it’s in a part of the convention center that didn’t seem to be in use. One day, I did what I’d wanted to do since my first sight of it: stick my camera lens right there on the (dirty) glass and make a photo.

For a room that doesn’t appear to be in use, there are a lot of wastebaskets, aren’t there?

Elevator Lobby


I stayed in a new hotel on my recent trip to Phoenix. That is, the hotel was new. The building was a fantastic Art Deco place that must have been a bank at some point in its past. The main lobby and this elevator lobby were luxurious, and I enjoyed seeing all the architectural details up close.
