Desert Beauty

Traveling to climates outside of mine is one of my favorite photography adventures. This is because I get to take myself out of my comfort zone and get images of plants (but sadly no animals this time) and landscapes that I would not usually have access to. At a family reunion (for Alan's family) we headed back to the desert. The desert was full of life and beauty. I got to adventure deep into it on a dirt bike, which I successfully rode for the first time!

Decrepit Buildings

I have this overwhelming urge to take pictures any time i see buildings in decay! Driving through rural areas I want to pull over and take pictures of barns and broken down sheds. Even run down vehicles peak my interest. At Emerald Cove, near Parker, in Arizona I was driving along and found some buildings, abandoned long ago. Obviously, I am not the only one who had interest in this building, but for very different reasons.

Completely covered in graffiti

A trailer next to the abandoned building. Probably won't be taken camping anytime soon.

Another view
Although this old fire truck is in really good condition, I still loved it because it is a classic!

Not the best picture, but it does not cease to amaze me how beautiful the sky is when you can getaway from the light pollution.

Not sure what type of bug this is, but it was totally freaky, so I had to get in close :)
