Weekly Photo Challenge – Prolific

Buckeye, Arizona.

This week, Krista Stevens’ visit to the Johnny Cash Museum caused her to reflect on the prolific works of that iconic musician. That visit was her inspiration for this week’s challenge, “…show us your interpretation of prolific.” You can read the entire challenge post here.

Buckeye, Arizona.

After a four-day road trip to Las Vegas where I captured over a thousand images, I sat down this morning and remembered I haven’t yet entered this week’s photo challenge. This week, Erica V. asks us to share our favorite sunrises and sunsets. You can read her entire challenge post here.

Lynn and I winter in a small house in a development that’s near some public desert land. It’s less than a two-mile drive to “leave the city” and be alone in the desert. It’s a great place to view Arizona’s magnificent sunsets. Continue reading

Buckeye, Arizona.

This week, Krista Stevens asks us to share interpretations of upward movement. You can view Krista’s example here. My original thought was of the many images I’ve captured featuring the Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Squadron. Certainly I have an entire gallery of images depicting vertical ascents.
