Notes from Nowhere

Photographic Day-Trip to Bisbee

 

As evidenced by the deafening absence of recent posts, I’ve had nothing much to report lately. Still in a holding pattern, waiting out winter.

So…I took advantage of today’s relatively rare weather – a warm-ish sunny day, high of 75 – to drive over to Bisbee, AZ for a quickie photo shoot. Bisbee is a cool little town tucked into the Mule Mountains, 45 miles down the road past storied and boring Tombstone.

Along the way, this defunct grocery in St. David, Az caught my eye. It had been named for the town’s first grocer who operated in the 1880s.

Grandma Goodman’s

This cactus cluster off Hwy 80 also caught my eye along the way…

And now, Bisbee…

I couldn’t agree more

 

As I was shooting these body building trophies, the actual trophy winner walked outside and asked, “You want a picture of the real thing?” How could I refuse…

      Thanks! Yes, like the camera. Need a telephoto lens which I’ll order this week. That’ll make a big difference in what’s possible.
