My home state of Arizona is a very good place to see rocks, as well as those places that use to be filled with rocks, and since rocks in their natural habitat don’t move very fast I don’t often get blurred pictures.
What follows is another sampling of recently scanned transparencies from earlier in my career, photos that have now been saved for posterity (yeah, sure, as if digitalization ever did that for anything!) This time I rooted through some of my collection from Arizona, a state lodged deep in my heart, to come up with these:
Serendipity strikes! I was just trying to take a photo of the famous scene and up lopes this Navajo kid on a horse. Since then I’ve seen multiple shots of him (or someone like him) posing like this so I guess it’s kind of a cliché shot by now. I don’t care; I just appreciate his effort!
The shot above is here because it amuses me.
There were, of course, many slides I’d taken in Phoenix and other towns but they tended to be dated and not so dramatic, and I know you like drama!
