Another favorite

photographer is California born but left and went to Florida. Actually he resides in the Big Cypress area of South Florida aka the Everglades. I have been to his studio and a workshop...I was so lucky to attend the workshop as it is usually done by many of his assistants. Mr Butcher is referred to as a black and white landscape photographer....I just think he is amazing. This is an announcement of his latest exhibit.

One of his images...I am lucky enough to have one print.

A Day in Sabino Canyon

See way up there above the arrow at the base of that mountain? Well that's where we hiked. Couldn't go any farther cause of the excessive amount of rain recently and also snow runoff. Couldn't see Seven Falls maybe next time.

Mr Doodles is never likely to get us lost.......his sense of direction is perfect unlike mine which is not so perfect.

The weather was perfect 74*, wispy clouds here and there. Not the best place for photos because not a lot of contrast. But Mr Doodles did get some good shots I'll post them later.

you can always click on any photo for an enlargement - just please, don't copy them without permission thanks!

One World One Heart

Have you heard about the One World One Heart give away? Everyone will have something unique to share. This is a world wide event to bring bloggers together and make new friends, you can read all about it at One World, One Heart The give away is Valentine's Day. This is the second annual blog-wide giveaway hosted by Lisa Oceandreamer. According to her blog set up for the event, "The original idea behind this was to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. It closes the gap of the blog community and enables us to interact, discover new and wonderful people." Here is her intention: "The blogging world is vast with more created all the time....and through blogging we can learn new things, read about other countries, learn of new ways to promote those vital issues, support causes as well as learn about new artists, writers, photographers et al. By having a list of those with a giveaway it is like a home tour with a map......going from place to place to see how others "live" and perhaps along the way make fabulous new connections and maybe win a door prize in the process."

Enjoy your visit........and while your here my giveaway is any 8 x 10 matted print that I have on this blog. Just leave a comment and I will draw a name at random the morning of February 14th. And that will be Arizona time. may leave an comment even if you are not a blogger, check back to see if you won February 14th. But if leaving annonomously leave a code so I can recognize you K!!!

What I saw on my walk today........

brite crystal blue skies, this humongous cactus, with this sweet little bird taking a rest.

and then I ran across a polling place and the only signs around was this fellas.... Go

sent by a friend...thanks
