May 28, 2010 – The Petersen

Posted in Snapshot365 with tags , , , , on May 28, 2010 by AZSalsman

May 30, 2010The Petersen House is only a couple miles from home.  It was the home of a Danish immigrant who was prominent in the development of Tempe, Arizona – home of Arizona State University.  I always like the “uniqueness” of the building for the style of the construction is atypical for this part of the country and the color is so refreshing! I should actually go in on of these days.

One thing that I learned is that taking the picture from their height, the image became more realistic. It was less like I was taking a picture of toys or figurines and more like they are just like me. I become as little as they are and become the gallery news reporter from “The Toys Tribune”.

May 7, 2010 – Happy Mother’s Day

May 7, 2010I couldn’t help capture the pride in the card Brooke had made for her mother – a little before she had her moment to give it to her.  She is also holding a paper necklace that she had made drawn with orange jewels and other special gems. How she loves her mother.

April 4, 2010

Okay, I tried to find some representation of Easter beyond the cliches of flowers, eggs and crosses – something that would normally be unnoticed.  I could find anything. Hmm.  I did find this in Scottsdale.  Perhaps there is something in this.
