There is also the Petersen House museum @ Priest and Southern in Tempe

Default Phoenix, Arizona Photo of the Day - 'Two-fer Sundays"

http://abqstyle.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/phoenix-mural.jpg (broken link)

This is a mural on a local business on 6th Street near the downtown ASU (Arizona State University) campus in Phoenix, Arizona. I love the sheer exuburance of it. Plus, it is one of the few works of art I've seen downtown that features a native American likeness.

http://abqstyle.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/encanto-park-lagoon-bridge1.jpg (broken link)

This scene is from Encanto Park in downtown Phoenix. This is one of the most impressive urban parks I have visited in any state. It is very well maintained, with a great diversity of activities and attractions including fishing, golf, picnic areas, basketball, handball courts, etc. In spite of the fact that it is the most heavily used park in Phoenix, the maintenance staff do an excellent job of keeping it in top shape. They are worthy of commendation! It is, to my eye, a model urban public space.

A new photo will be posted tomorrow! ABQStyle

Nice picture of Encanto. Several of the large trees took a hit in a big storm last summer/fall, I remember going there as a child many times. I drive by it a lot now, but haven't been on the grounds for a while. This pic makes me want to go hang out when it cools off!

Default A Bit of Bohemia in Phoenix . . .

http://abqstyle.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/colorful-phoenix-downtown.jpg (broken link)

Today's Photo of the Day shows a bit of a "bohemian" neighborhood on Fifth Street, nestled in the shadows of downtown Phoenix. This photo shows MADE Art Boutique in the foreground.

Default Two New Phoenix, Arizona Photos

http://abqstyle.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/papago-sunset-in-blue.jpg (broken link)

One of my personal favorites, this shows a Arizona sunset against the backdrop of Papago Park, Phoenix, Arizona. This is one of the best places to view a sunset in Phoenix, the fishing lagoons reflect all those wonderful colors!

http://abqstyle.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/phoenix-convention-center-2.jpg (broken link)

This photo shows the Phoenix Convention Center in downtown Phoenix with the Bank of America building looming in the background against a blue Arizona sky.

More photos to come tomorrow!

A little reminder that parts of Phoenix are also in decline.

That picture is actually, a little "pretty" in a stark way. Is that one of those condemned old farm houses in Laveen? Or a condemned and abandoned house in Sky Harbor International's flight path?

I thought so too. It is actually an old c.1915 garage in the McKinley school area of Phoenix. You will note it sits right on the alley behind it which is typical of the old neighborhood garages.
