Dead Saguaro in Southern Arizona.

Dead Saguaro in Southern Arizona.

This is beauty in the Sonora Desert in Tucson Arizona; a trunk of a deal Saguaro Cactus. These ageless plants tend to be majestic even in death. It is said that it takes up to 75 years before a Saguaro Cactus can grow it’s first arm. I shot this image with the Panasonic GH2 and the Panasonic Lumix 100-300mm Super-Telephoto lens. All my images are captured using the Micro Four Thirds format which I love and have been investing in since 2008. I’m not limited to any brand or system but this format has served me well both in size, and functionality. Also, I’ve been posting regularly to this blog now and will continue to do so!

This no man’s land is slightly north of Tucson, Arizona, just off the interstate. I avoided entering Picacho Peak State Park, because they try to make it to kosher. There’s nothing pristine to the landscape. I look for the garbage and abandoned trails that people leave behind because we share an intimate connection to the land. This stroller really added the spook that I wanted to capture. It tells me how harsh the Sonoran can be and to remember we are subject to the will of the planet. One day, civilization as we know it could become a relic, and artifact in and of itself. It’s all in how you choose to interpret the land and how we treat it…

This is a second shot that I’ve decided to post on the photoblog here. I’ve captured many beautiful images of Southern Arizona and I’m tempted to post a bunch at once but will do so in my typical slow fashion until I can develop of standard photo series for each place that I’ve visited around Southern Arizona. I photographed a bunch of places between Bisbee and Tucson, Arizona. The beauty of Southeast Arizona is hard to surpass and I’m thinking of relocating and living there in order to capture more images of the area. So I hope that you enjoy these photos!

There’s something very spiritual and supernatural about the Sonoran Desert in Arizona. Words cannot describe what I’m feeling when traveling through that country and getting up early in the morning to see the beauty. The desert is a miracle with the abundance of plant life and the variety of things that wax strong in the outback. My thought process is starting to lean towards the Tucson area, and down into Mexico. I may end up moving into this country in the near future…
