    I live in Mesa. My son and I drove over to Superior. Not really much there, but it is old and quaint. We have not made it to Globe or Miami to go exploring there.

    There are things down in Tucson and north in Sedona and Jerome. A lot depends upon what you are looking for. Tombstone has Helldorado Days. I don't know how much camera work you can do down south in Kartcner Caverns. Bisbee, the old mining town is south of Tucson.

    What camera are you using?

    I would say Rulan, photography starts in the morning at the place where you live. It's maybe the most difficult thing. Seeing the subjects to photograph in your 'each day' envirement.
    It could be even an very fine serie: a day in your life at home, from morning to evening.

    Only a thought... :-)

    That is a good idea, unfortunately the day in the life of Rulon consists of a whole bunch of nothing. Maybe when I get a life tho. Haven't had alot to do since I've moved down.
    I use a Nikon N2020

    I drove up to Globe yesterday, drove around in the residential area for half an hour till I found the Historical District. It was awesome! There's so much architecture up there. I was taking pictures of the Holy Angels Christian Church which is gorgeous from the outside, when an old guy came out and offered to let me come in and take pictures inside. It was way fun. Unfortunately all the film I had left when I got inside was color, and the lighting wasn't great and my flash is broken, so I don't know how they'll turn out, but I'll post some pics in the critique gallery from what I got outside.

    Sounds like some of the guys want to go out to "play" (shoot) with you. I sent you a private email yesterday. Just look at the top.

    Haven't made it all the way to Globe yet, but I am glad to hear of your discovery. It is fun to scout out some of the dying places where one can discover relics that are still standing.

    Now that things are finally cooling off, I am shooting as time and energy allow.

    Two places that I know of just off I-10 are Picacho Peak, a volcanic neck remnant that gives a nice view over the desert and the Casa Grande, the ruins not the town. I'm wondering if that airplane storage area by Tuscon is accesible, that would be a neat shoot.

    That'd be fun to go out shooting with some of you. As I'm a poor youngster I don't have my own car to drive around, but if someone was going to shoot somewhere and wouldn't mind having me along I'd love to come.

    Hey, that's not fair... talking about all the great places in AZ that my friends and I would visit when I lived there - and before I became seriously involved with photography. You are just trying to make me jealous
    Not fair, not fair at all, I say.
    Rulon, there are some really great suggestions in this thread. If you get the chance, visit them all!

    I sometimes miss living in Arizona, so I recently subscribed to Arizona Highways - which, BTW, has a policy of not accepting images taken on digital cameras.
