Another in my series of murals in central Phoenix (and then, the world)…
It’s a big one…
It’s by Joerael J. Elliott. It is described by Robrt L. Pela (not a typo, that’s how he spells it), a Phoenix New Times writer, as “a gorgeous mural depicting our overbearing desert sun and how people survive it.”
It’s on the side of a building housing Way Cool Hair.
Here’s another link where you can see more photos.
This is one of the more elaborate ones I’ve seen, so far.
And, hopefully, this one won’t get tagged as so many others have.
This is Brophy Prep, a Jesuit-run boys’ high school downtown. It wasn’t my intended destination but I couldn’t find what I was looking for so I stopped here. It’s a very pretty campus but the sky was ominous and it was getting close to dusk. There was no one else around so I felt a little creeped-out and was anxious to leave. I had that “being watched” feeling.
I’ve never been in this place but every time I drive by it, I enjoy looking at it. So this time I stopped.
It’s definitely colorful here in Phoenix.
For awhile, I was stuck on photographing flowers; now it looks like I’m stuck on photographing murals. This one is by Greg Bucher, a local graphic artist who specializes in murals.
There seem to be a lot around here so you’ll be seeing more of them as I locate them.
I’m going to go back and tag my mural photos from a year ago as well as the more recent ones and a new series will be born.
Edit: If you click “Murals” in the Tag Cloud on the lower left, you can see all my mural photos. For some reason, clicking on “Murals” at the top of the post takes you to all WordPress posts tagged “Murals.”

Where there is no vision, the people perish. Proverbs 29:18
This is a diptych made by Ken of Photokenesis, a fascinating, unique photoblog you should check out if you haven’t already. On the same day I posted the shot on the left, from my Rose Johnson blog post, Ken took his photo on the right, two thousand miles away, not having seen my blog yet that day. Pretty synchronistic, huh? Especially since it happened again recently with some similar blue door posts. Freaky!
Ken has a Phoenix connection since he used to live here and I have a connection to Chicago, where Ken lives and photographs now, as that is where my father and his family came from and where I still have cousins I visit yearly (and I was born in Rockford, IL, about 90 miles from Chicago so I spent a lot of time there when young).
It’s fun when strange things happen in the blog world.
Hmmm, not much to say…Glad I almost always have my p & s with me…I think…
