Photo Essay: Greenway Park Ramble

Looks like our monsoons have taken a vacation. Other than brief sprinkles, we haven’t had rain in almost a week. So, with thunderstorms not threatening Tucson’s Tuesday evening, I decided to ramble around the neighborhood. First point of interest was the new Fifth Avenue Greenway, which has transformed the look of this alley between Waverly…

Nature Photography: After the Blizzard

My recent trip to southeastern Pennsylvania featured no-problem air travel and foul weather that didn’t materialize until after I was on the ground. What the weather forecasters billed as a blizzard turned out to be underwhelming. We didn’t even get half a foot of snow. After the weather cleared, it was time to go exploring….

Event Photography: Dillinger Days and Downtown Tucson Construction

This past weekend, I attended the annual Dillinger Days celebration in Downtown Tucson. This event commemorates the 1934 capture of "Public Enemy Number One," bank robber John Dillinger. The festivities centered around the Hotel Congress, where Dillinger and his gang of outlaws stayed when they first hit town. The hotel boiler caught fire, forcing the…

Travel Photography: Vermont State House

My recent visit to Vermont included an afternoon in Montpelier, the state capital. It’s more like a small town than anything else. Population’s just over 8,000, which makes Montpelier the smallest capital city in the United States. My Montpelier afternoon centered on the Vermont State House, where my Aunt Jean is a volunteer tour guide……

Architectural Photography: Marist College

What’s worse, the Marist College building is in danger of collapse. There is exterior bracing, not shown in this photo, but no one…

Event Photography: Another Monday Evening Walkabout

Since mid-April, I’ve been blogging about Tucson’s weekly Meet Me at Maynards Social Run and Walk. And here I go, I’m doing it again. This past Monday marked the 14th running (or walking) of MMM. And, once again, I went walkabout with my camera. I’m not going to be one of those Downtown Tucson cheerleaders…

Construction Photography: Katrina Plus Three

Just returned from another week of post-Katrina reconstruction in Mississippi. Although much appears to be back to normal, there’s still quite a bit of work to be done. Take, for example, this house. Almost three years after the storm (local people rarely call it Katrina), the owners are still living in a trailer. Since drywalling…
