So last night he got photos loaded, and here are some of them. I think he's got a good eye for composition, and I think I am beginning to look somewhat, um, older than I used to. Hmph. Oh well. Vertical and above ground is always a good thing, right?
The nature scenes are the Desert Botanical Gardens. The little statue is Gabe and Mary Jo's back yard, one of my favorite places in the world. That statue is right smack in the center, and I love to visit it. The view past there is the Sun City golf course, which provides a good deal of golfing AND viewing entertainment. As well as errant golf balls for the dog.

|More grows in the desert than you'd think. The "dead tree" is a saquaro skeleton.|
|A sun dial with barrel cactus, of course.|
|This cactus is HUGE. See below...|
|Hard to wrestle the camera away from him, but worth it. Smile, baby!|
|The average rainfall in Phoenix is 7 inches a year.|
|The "Gabe and Jo" statue.|
|The Jo. (And golf cart parking.)|
|I tried to tell him I was a mess. Did he listen?|
