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…

"Diamond" Jim Hewitt is a musician, music producer, and web applications developer from Oracle, Arizona. He periodically sends e-mails announcing upcoming gigs.

Event Photography: St. Patrick’s Parade

Yesterday was cold, windy, and rainy. Despite the not-so-perfect weather, the annual St. Patrick’s Parade wound its way through Downtown Tucson. The Seven Pipers Society helped lead the way… Since this was a Tucson parade, it had to include some industrial-strength weirdness. The Mashed Potato Queens were more than happy to oblige… This puppy found…
