Here I am jumping with joy to see the Southwest turning colorful again instead of that drab brown/beige color.  Taken in my neighborhood at the recreation center down the road from where I live.  Taken with my Nikon D-80, 18-135 mm lens.  These are African daisies, by the way!

A long-time passion, I’ve held a camera in my hand for as long as I can remember. Capturing “the moment” is my goal, whether it be people, wildlife or a beautiful Arizona sunset. I am originally from NYC but now live in the desert southwest.
Thank you for viewing my images… I hope that you enjoy!

    Wow, this is what it looks like now? Oh you lucky thing! Ohio is just cold and barren at the moment. Well at least I can enjoy the early spring in your photos! Lovely capture, Barbara!

  • So sorry, Rachel, yes it is beautiful here now. But the summers… hot.. hot.. hot!
