PHX is the airport symbol and mail shorthand for Phoenix, Arizona, where I live. Well I don't live there... and I don't work there... but it is where I tell people I'm from because that's what they know. For those who don't know, Phoenix is located in the south-central portion of Arizona, about 350 miles east of Los Angeles, California. Fun fact: Phoenix is at almost the same longitude as Easter Island. Why do I like this shot, or, how does my photo brain work? The vignette caused by Viv's ultra wide angle gives a round shape to the middle, but the upper left has a bit of color. The image splits in half with the red and black; the bottom splits in half with the letters on top and the lights pointing down; the lights point orthogonal. The light seems to be coming from below which is impossible during midday and also contradicts the shadows. The letters have strong shadows, and break the image into thirds. The bricks make an interesting pattern and have some texture. Only two of the three letters have a window above them. The two windows are the same, but different. Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim with Kodak Elitechrome EBX 35mm ISO100 slide film cross-processed as a color negative. No other effects added. Development by Tempe Camera. Sixth shot posted from single roll, and there are many many more...

Nasturtium from Desert Botanical Garden, Phoenix, Arizona! Thanks again to meadowmom for the ID. I've grown these at one time or another, but I couldn't quite place them. As they say, "Memory is..." ...um... "Memory is the..." ...um..."the thing with feathers." Or is that hope? Wait - don't tell me, I'll get it... Fun facts about nasturtium from Wikipedia: - The name means "nose tweaker"! - Nasturtium is not a member of the genus Nasturtium, it's a member of the genus Tropaeolum. The members of the genus Nasturtium are water cresses and mustards (this is where the name comes from - the effect on the nose of eating these) - This plant got the name nasturtium because it produces an oil similar to one produced by water cress - The plant is useful for insect repellant properties
