Travel Photography: Scenes from Greater Phoenix, Arizona

On my Phoenix trip last month I met a bighorn sheep, chilled in a wonderful donut shop, and didn't cry over spilt milk.

Puss & Boots

Just an odd picture I liked from my friend's kitchen before a night out back when it was still boots weather. (From left) Mr. Loggerfeld, Whitney and Meghan.

Foreclosure Art in Gainesville

I felt a small sense of triumph when I read this story last week about a Florida couple foreclosing on a bank. It reminded me of a Florida foreclosure story I worked on last year but never blogged. It's always inspiring to see folks take back power and make a statement after being foreclosed upon.

Last year, writer Matt Shaer and I met a local artist and professor named Jack Stenner who turned his foreclosed house into an interactive public art project. Matt's story, Open house: Foreclosure art meets the whims of the web, describes our visit to the house and includes encounters with squatters, Mormon missionaries, stray cats, and a spider 'the size of a child's palm'. Definitely not my typical CSM assignment, and well worth the read.
