Photoblogging: Virgin Video
OK, I'm back from Tucson! I shot the above photo from Sparkledad's Prius (Go Dad!). It was fun! I saw brother and sisters and nephews and parents and old friends 'n' such. I visited the stupendous Desert Museum for the first time in 15 years. I went to an excellent art opening on Congress (and purchased a great print) and was glad to see that downtown Tucson is still pretty trashy and weird despite all the misguided efforts of those who should know better; I'd say it's been fixed up just enough, but not too much. I got to hear (but not see) my parents' jack-o-lantern get eaten by appreciative javelinas (they left the stem and most of the candle). I was chagrined to see that Arizona design still consists entirely of dusty pink and peach geometrics with turquoise and copper accents, and was horrified to encounter the awful Kokopelli in myriad ghastly forms.
So anyway! I'm back. What's up? I hear there's some sort of contest going on today?
