Just got back from a trip to Hermosillo Mexico where I spent an afternoon exploring the back streets and parks. I always see a lot of stray dogs in Mexico and rarely see any that are being taken care of. I came across one of the Lucky dogs in Mexico. This puppy was best friends with a Homeless man from Hermosillo. He was very kind and allowed me to photograph his beautiful dog who gets to ride in a luxury shopping cart and eat like a King. Its always amazing to see how much we need animals and they need us. Please give some love to your animals everyday.
Continuation of my series of urban infrastructure and landscapes. This drive-in closed about 2.5 years ago. Land owners and theatre owner couldn’t come to terms on a new lease. I only went once in the 30 years I’ve lived here. Wish I could remember which movies I saw. I do remember they were still using the speakers that you hung over your car window. Will definitely head back over there soon to create more images.
One of my favorite things to do while in unfamiliar places is to photograph the streets and explore. I was recently in Hermosillo,Mexico for my TEOE show and had a couple days to just explore. I found myself walking through some back streets with some friends when we happened upon a business were Coyotas were being prepared. We were invited in and allowed to photograph the process. I am always amazed how friendly everyone is in other countries. Also these Coyotas are amazing!
The Coyotas are a popular type of Mexican sugar cookie. The first recipes for them date back to the 19th century and coyotas are frequently thought to originate in a region of Mexico known as Sinaloa. Contemporary recipes for coyotas can often be found throughout Mexico and the southwestern United States. The typical batch of coyotas yields cookies that are larger and flatter than other kinds of sugar cookies and they are traditionally flavored with brown, rather than white granulated, sugar.

I took a ride out to Goodyear to check out the old Phoenix Trotting Park. I’ve always been fascinated by this site. There are some interesting YouTube videos from crazy people who have ventured inside. Here are a couple https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cQrSrv-KKE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-C53gUXcIXw Also, check out the wikipedia page for the brief history of this unique structure. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoenix_Trotting_Park

We had a client meeting this morning at Lux in downtown Phoenix. Fun being showered with the “skin” of the coffee beans. Still finding them in my hair. Made for a cool image.
