Standing on a corner…

“…in Winslow, Arizona…such a strange sight to see…some photogs, Lord, looking really weird, and I think they’re staring at me…”

Yeah yeah…I’m no lyric writer, give me a break 🙂

If you follow this blog, you’ll remember a few weeks back that a few of us Phoenix photogs woke up butt-early in the morning to meet at 3:45am and drive to Two Guns, AZ for a little sunrise shooting at a ghost town.

I can’t even tell you how much fun we had and how great it was to hang with these guys all day. We spent a lot of time at Two Guns, then the little abandoned gas station and motorhome campground at the same spot…then we drove to Winslow and saw some cool stuff, took some shots and from there it was lunch in Flagstaff at Oreganos before our big haul to Grand Falls.

Epic day…awesome guys. Up top you have Rick Young on the left, Chris Frailey next, Ken Peterson after and me on the end.

Thanks so much guys for being a part of this big trip and making the day awesome. Also, our good buddy Scott Wood was supposed to be there too but had to work at the last minute, so we were highly bummed that he didn’t make it until later in the day.

So here are some other random shots from our trip.

Chris standing at a super-graffitied old swimming pool area.

Ken down inside the pool getting a unique perspective.

The next four images are our model poses in the Two Guns abandoned gas station. I took these (except for the one Chris took of me, thank you buddy) to just play around with the wide angle upwards kind of shot. I mean, how can you NOT want to pull in that opening in the roof and the gorgeous sky?

Another of Chris shooting graffiti.

Portrait shot of the day below of Rick…

Rick driving us back to Flag.

Ken shooting cows on the way to Grand Falls.

And…the epic shot of Ken perched on a tiny precipice getting a good look at the Falls.

    Great shots! Sometimes we get so immersed in the scenery, we forget to capture the people we’re sharing the time with. You guys did a great job – looks like it was a fun trip!

    I love the portraits you all took. Everyone looks so authoritative and serious! Also, is the very first shot your new band pose, just add in some instruments and you are good to go 🙂

    Love this post. A great set of shots from what looked like a fantastic day of shooting and adventure!

    P.S. I’ve always been an Eagles fan…I can’t believe you butchered their song like that 😉

    I like the photos in the car! Probably it’s the perspective and color that got me to it. As always, great shots.
