Graphic Design Using My Stock Photography

My stock photography collection covers a wide variety of topics – everything from the back roads of rural America to urban street scenes. They are available for use in your print and Web design projects. The photo on the front of this postcard is of an abandoned gas station that I encountered in Washington State…

Bike-tography 108: A Two-Wheeled Scholarship

Back in February, I blogged about one of my Tucson cycling heroes, Lee Rombach. Following his death at the age of 93, his friends decided to offer his much-used (and much-beloved) bicycle as a transportation scholarship for foreign students at Arizona State University. Many of them come to this country with little more than the…

This neighborhood like a throwback to the Old West, only it’s right in the heart of the city. RHW residents are quite fond of their natural desert environment and their dirt roads,…
