Kamping Kats and Aspen Faces
This is my last Flagstaff post and rather than share individual images of my cats and Aspen faces, I decided to spare you and combine each subject in a collage. Read more
Even during summer, I do A LOT of hiking in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve (starting before sunrise). Several new trails opened this year giving us access into some really interesting places. The McDowell Sonoran Preserve now encompasses over 27,000 acres and more land is set to be preserved. The north area of the Preserve is my favorite not only because the area is very close to home but because of the amazing terrain and rock formations! Following are some photos from my favorite trails. Read more
Flagstaff Part Five-Fun Stuff
If you don’t already know, I am afflicted with Pareidolia. What’s that you ask? The (wikipedia) definition is: “a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant………examples include seeing images of animals or faces in clouds, the man in the moon, etc.” That’s me. If you see faces in my images below, you too are afflicted. In that case….enjoy! Read more
Found a great face on a walk in my neighborhood this evening.
Another Desert Face
Came across this guy on my walk a few days ago. Shot with my Canon S1 compact in very low light so the quality wasn’t great but one click of a preset in Topaz Labs new B&W Effects and it’s not bad! The software is available for $29.99 for a short time. Worthwhile in my opinion.
I pass this spot almost every day on my morning walks but I had never noticed this Saguaro. Lighting is key to seeing faces in the desert and I was out a little earlier than usual yesterday OR he might just have moved into the neighborhood 🙂
Beware of Cholla
New hikers to our area are first and foremost warned to stay away from Cholla.
Cholla creatures seem to give warnings too 🙂
